Young Carers Project, The Lowry


A year long skill sharing and creation process with young carers in Salford, in collaboration with The Lowry and Salford young carers.

In March 2018, The Knotted Project were commissioned by The Lowry to devise a brand new physical theatre production in collaboration with a group of Young Carers from Salford.

The Knotted Project spent a whole year developing a relationship, building a company and sharing skills with an incredibly talented group of Young Carers. In partnership with Gaddum, Salford Young Carers and The Lowry, the piece that emerged was a complex, heartfelt and urgent one, exploring Grief and the pressures that Young Carers face on a daily basis.

The end production ‘Time To Bloom’ premiered at The Lowry in March 2019 and then went on to win the Heart of Salford award that year.
