The dream

To Leave behind a better world for our Children, than the one we inherited 

Loving our world

The What About Us founding team are passionately committed to our beautiful world. We care about the world, the people who live here, nature & animals, the environment, climate change, human rights, freedom of speech, disadvantaged people, and war refugees. And lots more. We fight for the underdog, the poor and those without a voice and we challenge all forms of corruption and exploitation of the planet and the people living on it.

 

Loving our world

Promoting peace

We believe in Peace not War, Love not Hate and support initiatives with the same beliefs. If a fraction of the trillions spent each year on arms, armies, weapons that kill & maim, tanks, fighter jets, nuclear weapons, battleships was instead invested into community driven peace related projects the world would be a healthier, happier, and wealthier place for everyone.

The What About Us Musical

 The Musical is the glue that binds our team together              

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

Film

A documentary is being filmed by the Award-winning team of Ben Kavanagh (Director) and Malcolm Willis (Producer)

The film will explore how young people, including from refugee camps, can overcome religion, conflict, hatred and cultural differences to produce a world class musical, against the odds and despite the challenges.   

The film team are following eight young artists that will be performing in the What About Us musical, including musicians currently living in refugee camps – from a life without hope to the world stage.   

Below is a sizzle reel for the film which includes all original music,

Book

Author Miriam Mulcahy is writing a book chronicling the journey of the musical from conception to the premiere and will feature the personal stories of the young people participating in the musical, from the early workshops to the premiere.

The book will also explore the Northern Ireland and Israeli/Palestinian conflicts putting context to the parallel hope of both communities; to live in peace.

The Movement

What About Us is more than a musical, it is a MOVEMENT giving a voice to young people to speak up for our planet, human rights and causes they believe in.

Inside the musical and creative teams, the cultural interactions are already showing that existing barriers to peace and harmony can be broken down and inter community bridges built.
