The One Percent project explores the care journey from care to independence through the eyes and perspective of care experienced young people on different parts of that journey. The project is a co production driven by young people in partnership with Inspired YouthYork Mediale and Joseph Rowntree Foundation.

Together the group have written and recorded a spoken word poem in masterclasses with Kritikal Powers, based on the journey of Sam, a young care leaver on the journey from care to independence.  Now the team behind the poem have started visualising the characters journey through a film production with Inspired Youth that will bring the words to life.

Day 3 welcomed Lauren to play her part in the film. Lauren acted scenes in a library in which Sam, the character in the story is considering her life, her education and where she wants to go in the future.

The One Percent will be showcased as part of York Mediale on 2nd October 2018, check the festival website for updates on the launch.
