We, The Crowd – Young Writers’ City and Unfolding Theatre join forces

I have a dream,

We all can hear the music,

The world was a team, united in song.

At the start of the academic year, the wonderful Unfolding Theatre invited our YWC participants to be part of their project We, The Crowd.

Working with Sage Gateshead and Newcastle United Foundation, Unfolding Theatre embarked on a project that celebrated how music and football could inspire friendships between often very different people.

After working with Fred Phethean to write their own song, I have a Dream, the project saw our YWC lot perform on stage at St. James’ Park, the home of Newcastle United. They shared the stage with Royal Northern Symphonia, as well as performers from within the community: West End Voices community choir, young people from Chat Trust, and children from Hawthorn Primary School.
