YOUNG actors across Inverclyde joined a worldwide movement to document life during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Members of Beacon Youth Theatre have been working alongside groups of young people from all over the globe to make their own coronavirus time capsule - a week-by-week video record of the crisis as seen through the eyes of teenagers.

The project has been created by London-based firm Company Three and aims to provide teenagers with support and a space to be creative during lockdown.

The young people have been creating videos every week in response to topics linked to lockdown - including school, home life, haircuts and fitness.

Teenagers as far afield as Kenya, Brazil, Australia, Croatia, the Netherlands and the USA have also been taking part.

By the end of lockdown, the group will have created a cumulative time capsule that anyone can watch online on YouTube.

The Beacon's creative learning co-ordinator, Kate Stevens, has praised the team behind the initiative and says it has enabled the youngsters to keep in touch with one another during unusual times.

She told the Tele: "It’s such a brilliant project to be involved in and we can’t thank Company Three enough.

"It’s a great opportunity for our youth theatre members to stay connected with each other during this pandemic and to form bonds through an international project.

"The project allows space for our young people to stay creative and to reflect and respond to the current crisis.

"Their excellent work speaks for itself."
