KIDS Southwark Siblings Project, along with CREATE’s major arts programme ART:SPACE, is giving young carers in the Borough of Southwark a chance to create and showcase their own music, storytelling, printing, collage and photography at a performance at Surrey Quays Shopping Centre.
Are you around Bermondsey this Wednesday 27 August? Come along and support the gang!
Performances at 12pm & 12:30pm
As well as giving the young carers the opportunity to be creative, the workshops will enable them to develop trust, social skills (including communication and teamwork) and self-confidence. The project also helps to create a network through which they can find support from other young people who are also carers.
Previous participants told us;
'I knew there were going to be other people who cared as well as me, but I didn’t know that they’d actually be like me, because I’ve never met someone who cares for someone else before. They’re normal people, they’re nice and I’m glad when I’m around them'
We hope you can join us!
