    Abstract

    In 2018 the Citizens Theatre, in partnership with CELCIS, was awarded funding from the Life Changes Trust’s Creative and Active Lives initiative, to establish Scotland’s first professional theatre company for young actors with care experience. The vision was to establish, develop and nurture a unique Theatre Company for the many diverse voices of young people enabling them to be listened to, heard, and celebrated for their artistic talents. The We Are Citizens! Ensemble developed from a series of taster workshops for care experienced young people at the Citizens Theatre, Glasgow, and in February 2020 they produced their first show.
