Filmmaker Lauren Joy Kennett
worked closely with the group to record the young women's experiences of life on tour, resulting in a new documentary
which will be premiered at The Basement
this Saturday (7pm).
Rebecca Fidler, Creative Project Manager, said:
" .. it's a great opportunity to celebrate all that has come before on Miss Rep and what comes next.
"It has been incredible to witness the journey of all our girls as we screen our documentary and launch our new website charting the last seven years .."
Miss Represented works with young women who face challenging life situations, using the arts to explore life experiences gaining a deeper understanding of themselves and the world around them.
Can You See Me Now? (a cross-art show featuring verbatim theatre and live original songs) explored experiences and reflections of systems and institutions: school, the care system and Social Services.
The event also featured Q&As, connecting with as many people as possible from all walks of life.
It toured to schools, Pupil Referral Units and the University of Sussex as well arts venues in Brighton, London, Liverpool and Manchester.
The second part of the night will feature an intimate sharing of brand new performances by the new members of Miss Represented.
Experience new creative work spanning love, beauty, friendship, self-image, loss and how it feels to be a young woman of Generation Now.
The evening will feature a range of original songs and poetry, which have been created in collaborative workshops with Brighton based singer/songwriter Cate Ferris and the Miss Rep team.
The event also celebrates the launch of Miss Represented's new website
, which will be live soon at www.missrepresented.co.uk.
Since Miss Represented started in 2011, the project's achievements have included a collaboration with multi award-winning rapper Plan B, a retrospective of work at Brighton Dome to celebrate International Women's Day and sell-out performances of their show Home: Life.
