In partnership with Kirklees Leaving Care Service, Creative Scene will be hosting a special online performance of GLUE by writer, poet and performer Louise Wallwein MBE to celebrate Care Leavers’ Week.
Louise grew up care of nuns from the age of nine. GLUE is a frank and gripping true story of her meeting her birth mother, three decades after being put up for adoption. The world as she knew it is was turned upside down, and this is how she learnt to fight back.
“Born, transferred, placed, discharged, returned. What can we learn from a life in care?”
Following the live online event, Louise will be working with a group of care experienced young people to develop their own stories – and Creative Scene are aiming to build a regular group and long term project that highlights the issues young people with experience of care face, their achievements and aspirations.

We’ll be sharing updates on the project throughout the winter – keep an eye on our social channels for updates.
