Listen 52

LISTEN 52 is a youth leadership and arts engagement project in Sheffield. Building to an ambitious city centre performance in Summer 2022. Eight Young Producers (16-21yrs) will join Chol to discover children and young people’s hopes and fears about what their world will be like 30 years from now.  

The Listen 52 team will hit the road in Chol’s new mobile base, the Cholavan! We will get creative with hundreds of children and young people in their locality. The Young Producers will gather stories, recruit  young performers, and build momentum towards their final event. During the final event, in Summer 22, audiences will witness large-scale  projections, sound installations, and live performers sharing vital messages from the year 2052. 

Previous Young Producers
