Cardboard Citizens

About This Project

Since 2013 Lyrix Organix has partnered with Cardboard Citizens on ‘Speakeasy’ – an annual youth education programme that explores ‘barriers to freedom of expression’ as part of Islington’s Word Festival.

We worked with young people affected by homelessness to produce poignant theatrical productions using spoken word and music to reveal important insights into the challenges faced by young people caught in ‘The System’. At times art mirrored life, with several of the participants experiencing huge difficulties with hostels, homelessness and the benefits system.
