My Journey My Voice Bangor Exhibition Launch

 

A successful launch of the  My journey My voice exhibition was launched at Bangor Library on Thursday 4  May by the local MP for the area Lady Sylvia Hermon.

We hope that many members of the public will visit the exhibition during its month long presence at the Library, taking time out to learn something about the lives of ordinary people who just happen to have a communication disability.

Presentation to Arts and Disability Forum

On 10 April, RCSLT gave a  presentation to the Arts and Disability Forum (ADF) Northern Ireland on Communications Disability. ADF, which is based in Belfast's Cathedral Quarter, represents the interests of disabled artists in Northern Ireland providing access to arts and culture and encouraging those with disabilities to avail of all the benefits art can offer. The presentation provided both organisations with a valuable opportunity to exchange ideas and discuss how those with communication disabilities can use art and culture to express themselves.

Already the exhibition has been hosted at 10 venues across Northern Ireland from Enniskillen, to Belfast, Newtownabbey, Lisburn and culminating in Londonderry for our first anniversary exhibition. The tour will continue into 2017 and will be hosted in libraries in Omagh, Lisnaskea and Downpatrick.

Our participants have continued to be at the fore of our campaign to increase awareness about communication disability throughout the tour of My Journey My Voice and have met with and addressed Ministers, Councillors, Lord Mayors, MLAs, commissioners and health and social care professions. Through our continued partnership with Disability Action and the Health and Social Care Board, and our latest collaboration with Libraries NI the exhibition has been experienced in person by hundreds of members of the public and thousands more people have viewed the exhibition online. 

We look forward to celebrating the first year of My Journey My Voice and are excited about what we can achieve in the coming year.
