In February 2018 we hosted an event called Breaking Down Barriers: Disability, Visibility, Accessibility.
Rather than holding just a traditional discussion event, we decided to take a more creative approach to allow those who face barriers to access in Edinburgh an opportunity to tell their stories, how they wanted to tell them. With a mixture of song, dance, poetry and film, as well as time for discussion, it proved to be a fun and rewarding afternoon for those who attended.
Special thanks to all our performers and stall holders who contributed so much, and to our Equalities Ambassador Nada Shawa who was the driving force behind the whole day, as well as performing herself.
