Young carers usually have few opportunities to take part in creative out-of-school activities. Our Young Carers projects provide an opportunity to change this.
The Festival has been working with Youth Action Wiltshire for more than five years to provide opportunities for young carers to develop their talents, creativity and confidence in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere.
This year young carers from across Wiltshire worked with professional dance artists and film makers from Being Frank Physical Theatre to create a short dance film. The film complements the Listen to Us music project that saw young carers spend five days working with musicians from Bath Philharmonia’s Music in Action Team to create their own original compositions. Watch the video they created below.
Our work with young carers is supported by Wiltshire Community Foundation, Sarum DFAS and an anonymous donor.
