We’ve spent our whole life running
The old world on our backs
Our eyes full of what’s left behind
Don’t be silenced…”
Anchoring The Wind…Because I Matter is the culmination of a long-term collaboration between the Department of Education and Training, local government, community health and the Victorian Commissioner for Children and Young People.
First premiering in 2015, Anchoring the Wind is a new Australian work that explores the issues surrounding some of our most vulnerable young people, especially those in care, and those who work with them.
This play gives voice to some of these stories, navigates the complexities of the care system and envisions a safer world.
Anchoring the Wind…Because I Matter is authentic, gritty drama, laced with hope, humour and song.
