Elevator Arts is proud to present Hidden Voices in partnership with Kool Carers.

Dates: Monday 5 June – Wednesday 14 June 2023

Location: Upper Foyer, Towngate Theatre, St. Martins Square, Basildon, SS14 1DL

Hidden Voices is a touching & joyful celebration of the experience of young carers.

Hidden Voices is a creative project in partnership with Kool Carers, working with young people ages 12-15 to amplify the voices of young carers and improve their mental health and wellbeing. The project has been funded by Essex County Council’s Arts & Cultural Fund.

Young people worked with artists George Morgan & Laurence Harding exploring creative writing, digital & analogue photography & the camera-less technique of cyanotype. Participants have created striking & poignant images with text and spoken word to create personal portraits of their lives, sharing their often hidden stories.

Hidden Voices exhibition runs from Monday 5 June to Wednesday 14 June at Towngate Theatre’s public Upper Foyer space. For more information on how to get there and opening times visit Towngate Theatre’s website here.

The Essex County Council Arts and Cultural fund has been designed to help organisations and practitioners to deliver a broad and exciting range of work and activity to engage with and bring residents together.

The arts, cultural and creative projects supported by the Essex County Council Arts and Cultural Fund, will contribute to the Levelling UP Essex Strategy and plays an integral part in enabling the objectives of Essex County Council’s wider objectives as set out in Everyone’s Essex.

We look forward to welcoming you to the exhibition!

Thanks for all your support!
