Children on The Future

Niamh
How would children reshape the world now?

What would they prioritise in their everyday lives, their communities and the wider world?

In 2019, I worked on a project with FACT & Holy Family Catholic Primary School. As we tried to make sense of our reality in 2020, I collaborated with 9 children from the school to reflect on the world. We exchanged letters for a few months to think about life during the COVID-19 emergency.

I had high hopes for a live event to bring together their ideas, but pandemics aren’t particularly interested in our plans. Here’s a link to a little book called Girl on the Gate that attempts to capture our experiences.
