Letters from Lockdown

The Lyric Hammersmith in partnership with Hammersmith & Fulham Council launched a new playwriting project for keyworkers children that attend schools in Hammersmith and Fulham. Working with their Artistic Associate, Simon Stephens, the project will ensure continued creative enrichment for vulnerable children across Hammersmith & Fulham.

The project began in schools May and will culminate as part of Children’s Arts Week in early July.

This projects encompasses all areas of Young Lyric, by working with targeted participants, Educational institutions and the Next Generation of talent.

It is our mission to engage with schools using our specialism of theatre to develop creative talent. This project has been developed for the children in our borough whose parents are working on the front line and who will need that extra care and opportunity to express themselves imaginatively. Hammersmith is our home and we will support the young people of Hammersmith even whilst our theatre is closed. We hope that this project supports the health, wellbeing, and creative energy of all these children.
