“It’s ok not to be ok”

imagine – an arts project


The Grace Dear Youth Theatre has launched a new project!

imagine…. is a physically distant but socially friendly art project. It is inspired by the iconic song written by John Lennon. Released in 1971, the song will be 50 next year. So, we are asking young people to join us and imagine the future into 2021.

The project has been designed so young people can work away from a screen. They will receive a monthly printed pack of art materials inspired by the song. It contains ideas for writing, lyric making, visual art and mindful colouring. The aim is that young people can, just like Lennon, go and make a masterpiece from the comfort of their bedroom. Or, they can use it as inspiration for a digital detox.

We invite young people to send their work back to us for a monthly digital showcase, reminding us that we are stronger together.

The pack has been put together with contributions from Bounce Theatre, local musician Aaaron Norton, urban artist Collagism and visual arts practitioner Nicole Cowan.

All of the artists will be available to offer masterclasses and workshops over the summer.
