Cultural Olympiad project with looked-after young people

Wednesday’s Society Guardian had an interesting article about a Stories of the World Cultural Olympiad project involving looked-after young people at the Foundling Museum. The young people met up with two elderly ‘foundling pupils’ as the abandoned children taken in by the Foundling Hospital were called, and then made sound installations based on their conversations. They also created wonderful artwork, which is currently on show at the museum. You can see some of it here too, and listen to a couple of the sound installations.
