About Us was a collaborative project involving five towns and cities across four nations. The show had 642 people working across it from concept to end, involved 350 singers across 20 choirs, and included 131 living portrait participants.
In the wider engagement programme we ran:
- coding and poetry workshops for 1600 pupils across 42 schools and 3 community groups
- 63 community events with over 1200 participants
In the digital programme there were:
- a total of 1587 poetry and coding competition entries from 1583 young people aged 4-18
- 20 competition winners in the first phase of the competition
