Ignite's Safeguarding Video for CUSP

Watch this video made by Ignite Theatre, in which a group of young people (15-22 years old) from Scotland present what makes them feel safe.

To help CUSP’s international partners engage with safeguarding and safeguarding issues, we worked with CUSP’s UK non-academic partner, Ignite Theatre. They were tasked with reading the written safeguarding document and ‘translating’ it into a visual tool.

Please, now watch the video that Ignite Theatre company made. In this film, a group of young people (15-22 years old) from the UK, Scotland, present different sketches of their lived experiences. They were guided by questions such as: What makes you feel safe? What makes you feel valued?

The video is their interpretation of what safeguarding means to them, as young people living in Scotland. As you watch it, please think about the many other contexts CUSP works in and/or of international research contexts which you have experience of and reflect on the following question:

To what extent is this interpretation ‘universal’ and to what extent is it context-specific?
