Young people from 14 UK & international centres – schools, children’s hospices, hospital schools, charities and refugee centres have worked together on a cycle of original shared poems, songs and a 360 film that explores what home means for them.
Room2 Dream is an immersive music and 360 film installation made by young people across the world, exploring the theme of home.
Young people from fourteen centres have worked together on a cycle of shared songs that explores what home means for them and a youth leadership group with representation from all partners came together to write a single shared chorus.
The children have never before been listened to so well. The opportunity to make links and forge bonds with other young people across the world has been life changing for our students. They have learned that their voices matter, their creativity matters and they have been able to collaborate in a shared artwork that transcends country borders Jess Selfe, English Literature Teacher, Bartholomew School, Eynsham
Through the eyes of young people we are taken on a journey from Zimbabwe, Rwanda, South Africa, Gaza, Syria, India and Nepal to England and Scotland.
A year’s collaboration between schools, children’s hospices, hospital schools and refugee centres involved creative writing, song making and 360 filmmaking
A remarkable score in response to the young people’s poems has been created by composer Jocelyn Pook
The fact that two groups of people from different parts of the world can come together to write such a creative piece of poetry amazes me. It fascinates me how total strangers are able to interact and connect so well together… It has built our confidence and exposed us to different forms of poetry to help us all become better poets. Student, Prince Edward School, Harare, Zimbabwe.
Your donations will fund the tour of the work to each location and the summer school in 2023.
