BRASS RAZOU : living and growing up on a low income in Liverpool – a play written and performed by young people

Poverty ends
A message from Tracy Ramsey, University Professional Tutor at Liverpool Hope University.
I would like to invite you to attend the performance of Brass Razoo which will be taking place at The Capstone Theatre on Wednesday 4th February from 6pm. 
The play has been written by and is performed by young people to highlight the struggles of living and growing up on a low income in Liverpool. This is part of an England-wide, youth-led, Poverty Ends Now Campaign – for more details see http://www.children-ne.org.uk/pen-poverty-ends-now-–-children’s-manifesto-poverty
Brass Razoo is a powerful account of the impact of poverty and also highlights the importance of youth and community work practice in terms of enabling the voices of young people to be heard, through creative means.
As part of the continuation of this project we are keen to work with and support colleagues to research and highlight local practice, which in testing times seeks to maintain the principles of informal education.
The performance is for students, youth and community workers and all those working with young people and the community. I have attached a flyer with more details, please share across your networks.
Tickets for the performance are free and available from Tracy Ramsey – ramseyt@hope.ac.uk or 0151 291 3461
I hope you are able to join us.
Best wishes
Tracy
