Creative work from The Studio of the Fostered Heroes project

The Studio of the Fostered Heroes!

Working in partnership with Redcar and Cleveland Children in Care Council we are developing a creative resource with care experienced children and young people, which will document their experiences of being in care.

Blue Cabin are working with a fantastic group of young people aged between 8- 21 who attend the Children in Care Council (CiCC) in Redcar & Cleveland, they have called themselves ‘The Studio of the Fostered Heroes!’. Together we are creatively exploring what it is like to be in care, and what messages they would like to tell the people in their lives. 

As part of this journey The Studio of the Fostered Heroes are working with three artists, Nicola Golightly visual arts, Laura Degnan film maker and writer Ruth Johnson, we hope to have a film to share in Autumn of 2022, so watch this space!

A CiCC exists to give care experienced children and young people the opportunity to shape and influence the parenting that they receive at every level. It gives young people a voice to have a say about the things that really matter in their lives, helping to shape the overall strategy for cared experienced people.
