The Andrea Project
A day of free events inspired by the life, work and legacy of Andrea Dunbar.
The group curating the day is made up of female artist and makers who have been involved in our 2015 – 17 Young Court programme of work. The work is part of the Young Court’s mission to expand the Royal Court’s commitment to new voices through ambitious work with young people and communities.

Writers: Jasmine Jones, Ambrin Mcbrinn, Jess Steadman, Beattie Green, Abi Earnshaw, Beatrice de Goede, Katy Hammer and Caitlyn Vinning.
