“We give our characters a problem with money, and then we listen to their story unfold…”JAMES BALDWIN, CREATE ARTIST
In our change:matters drama workshops, young carers learn about saving, budgeting, interest, borrowing money and debt through writing and performing dramatic pieces.
Led by professional drama artists and script writers including James Baldwin (who you can see in the video above), the young carers explore these themes by writing and performing short plays, where characters navigate different financial scenarios. Scroll down to see examples of their work.
