Self Directed Project: Loneliness Is...

The Loneliness Connects Us project explored youth loneliness through arts-based and creative methods with 42nd Street, a Manchester-based charity that supports young people under stress. We were invited by 42nd Street to offer a creative response to the report. My animation is a call to action for all youngsters who are suffering in silence, to seek help through organisations such as 42nd Street. I wrote, recorded and animated my own poem. As somebody who has suffered from this exact problem, this project meant a lot to me and was very poignant. Especially since we have all recently been in lockdown, everybody has experienced loneliness in one way or another. I went for a very simple animation style that has the figures being drawn out before your eyes to compliment the verses of the poem.
