Presented by The Artemis Theatre Company

A script-in-hand production based on the lived experiences of older LGBT+ people in adult social care.

The play by Clare Summerskill is based closely on interviews with older LGBTQ+ people about their experiences with social care services.

It has been written with a social care workforce in mind, but everyone is welcome to attend. The event includes a safe-space performance followed by Q&A.

Please be aware that some of the content of this play makes for upsetting and uncomfortable listening – it is based on real-life experiences. The performance contains themes about abuse, transphobia, homophobia, and heteronormativity.

The FREE event forms part of a research project at the University of Kent’s Centre for Health Services Studies (CHSS). If you have any questions, please get in touch with Jolie Keemink on

ART31 takes its name from Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child, which states that ‘Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities’.

ART31 is a vision created with, by, and for young people in Kent, championing the belief that all children and young people have an entitlement to access high quality arts and culture, to empower them to achieve their creative potential, and to genuinely engage young people as equal partners in any decision making that affects them.

The ART31 Youth Board is made up of young people from across Kent aged 13-25 who steer its governance, and influence policy and practice across the county and beyond, challenging the creative sector to examine existing ways of working and integrate young people into the core of their practice.
