The Story of Care Ambassador programme invites care experienced young people to produce creative responses to the care system – as it was, as it is now. The Ambassadors attended monthly workshops to reflect on the care system, and to develop skills in creative media.

‘Moving On’ by Billy

Taken during a time of change, Billy’s photography series focuses on the various ways in which we transition to new chapters of life, in the many forms that takes: “moving on with friends, moving on with your life…[and] not just moving on in the literal terms. More moving on with mental health, political viewpoints, or other things.”

‘Moving On’ is part goofy, part real. Looking back at the photos after several months, Billy said:

“It’s nice to kind of relive the memories, which I guess kind of is moving on, looking back at what’s happened in your past and for good or for bad, it’s kind of made you the person who you are today. So you can’t really be mad at that.”
