Hidden Corners creates theatre by and about young carers. Through this we aim to empower and validate the young carers involved, who can often feel isolated and confused. Through this we feel we can also benefits the families and wider communitys of the cast members, Through our performances we also aim to inform audiences about the lives of young carers and therefore reduce social stigmas and taboos.
The Intent of YWCA of Canberra:
We work creating theatre with young people affected by an illness or dissability in their family and create work in many styles which can be dark, comic, abstract or raw but is always thought provoking and sincere.
