WHAT ABOUT US THE MUSICAL 

What About Us is a live stage musical currently being developed by over 50 young artists from countries that have been affected by war and terror such as Israel, Palestine and Ireland.  The Musical which will launch in 2022 addresses many of this generation’s societal issues such as climate change, increasing armed conflicts and refugees forced to leave their home because of war or persecution.

Wrapped up in a beautiful love story

Speaking up for change 

The musical is a platform for the younger generation to speak up for change while demonstrating how they can overcome prejudices and hate, with the capacity to work and socialize with other young people from opposing cultures and religious backgrounds; providing an opportunity to challenge the status quo at this decisive moment in human history. What About Us is dealing with societal issues such as war, human trafficking, climate change, the accelerating challenges to the environment and the hardships too many disadvantaged people face daily.

WHAT ABOUT US IS MORE THAN A MUSICAL, IT’S A MOVEMENT

The What About Us website and social media channels are giving a voice to young people to speak up for causes they believe in.

What About Us is a project that leads by example. It brings together artists from opposing sides in conflict zones to show that it is possible to forget our differences. At the same time, it is a call to action for people to start caring more about each other and about the world. The world doesn’t belong to us, we only have it on loan during our lifetime, and as tenants we should care for it and pass it on to the next generation in good shape. That next generation is asking “What About Us?”
