The young people involved in the work are all artists and theatre-makers. Although there are different levels of experience, aptitude and ability among artists, there is also an equality of spirit that exists beyond the differences of material or educational circumstance.

To locate them might at first seem a daunting task, but bear in mind that it might not be as hard as it seems. Why not start from what, or who, you know? What connections might you have with another school, youth group or arts organisation in your area? If you are in India and want to twin with a group in the UK (or vice versa), does anyone in the group have a link with a school, a community or an arts project in that country? Does anyone have a relative or a friend who might have suggestions? This can apply to both the small-scale and largescale project.
