Imaginary Theatre is seeking young artists aged 7 - 12 to work with us on the creation of a digital sound and video installation at Metro Arts called Giants Among Us

Giants Among Us is a collaboration between adults and children created through a series of exploratory workshops. The work is a reflection on Article 13 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, which states that “the child shall have the right to freedom of expression; this right shall include freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds”

Over three days in December, a group of children will work with a team from Imaginary Theatre to take a creative adventure, asking some big questions, and dreaming up even bigger answers. By exploring the perspectives of the group through creative expression across multiple artforms like drawing, writing, movement, sound and more, the young creative team will capture a collect ideas, opinions, hopes and dreams, capturing a moment in time for the world to hear.

Imaginary Theatre will then curate this content into Giants Among Us, a sound and video installation where giant images of our smallest citizens occupy urban space, illuminating the walls of Metro Arts whilst the airwaves are filled with tiny voices telling of enormous ideas. Passers-by become audience as they bear witness to gentle giants sharing an invitation to pause, watch and listen. Towering above the adults that watch them, children peer from their vast perches. As they gaze out, they play, pace, and ask the question; do you notice us now?
