“Our work on the Other People’s Children project began back in 2010. We came together as a group to showcase the stories of children who had passed through the British care system between the 1930’s and the 1980’s. We knew from the very beginning that it would be a massive project to undertake, however with strong will and determination we knew we could succeed in creating a modern and unique piece that would capture the hearts and minds of many.
