With the shocking and saddening events that have taken place in the UK recently, I have been aware of the need to discuss the whats and wherefores with my own children. They have asked me so many inquisitive questions regarding religion and faith, nationality and the causes of conflict throughout the world, and I have realised that many other children would be asking the same questions of their parents and teachers in schools as my daughters were of me.
When Tony and I began writing together, our main aim was to produce material that would engage with young people and allow them to use our shows as a spring-board to discuss some very important issues, such as the environment, bullying, and especially world conflict. Many of our shows, including The Dogtown Fire, Perfect Worlds and Reach Out and Touch address these issues, but in a child-friendly way so that young people can understand the meaning of conflict, hatred towards our fellow humankind, and especially the plight of refugees in the world. Our shows are designed to engage and inspire young people to get talking, and hopefully make our world a better place! Check out our shows and they will hopefully inspire your children to reach out and touch! Thanks for checking into www.up4itmusic.com.
