Where We Are


Where We Are is a new creative initiative by Imaginate, Starcatchers and Lyra, to work in a collaborative and creative way with children and families across Edinburgh, Glasgow and Fife.

Supported by the Creative Scotland Youth Arts Targeted Fund, Where We Are will recruit up to 17 artists, practitioners, and production staff to engage over 6 months with refugee families, groups of children, and young mothers and babies through a programme of inspirational artistic activity.  In partnership with organisations focused on tackling inequality, incl. Refuweegee, Multicultural Family Base and Fife Gingerbread, the three distinct project strands will be informed by the wellbeing and needs of the children and young people involved.  

The project partners will deliver a comprehensive training and development programme for the artistic team including anti-racism and trauma-informed child protection training, with opportunities to share artistic practices and project learning. We aim to create a supportive and shared experience across the whole project. 

Where We Are is all about connecting with children and young people through performance making, creative arts and play as we begin to look towards life beyond the pandemic.
