Seen but Seldom Heard: Challenging perceptions of disability through poetry and performance.

Seen but Seldom Heard‘ aims to empower a group of young disabled people with a ‘voice’ and the necessary creative skills to challenge stereotypes and engage in conversation about issues, policies and practices which affect them in their daily lives and their future aspirations.

‘Seen but Seldom Heard’ is an ‘arts activism project through which young people living with a physical disability (14-19 years) can engage in creative activities designed to encourage them to reflect on their lived experiences and power them to challenge societal perceptions of disability through poetry and performance.
