Learning disability photos displayed at Tower Bridge
Wednesday 17 December 2008
A free public exhibition of photos featuring people with a learning disability has gone on display at More London.
The exhibition – called This is me – is based on Mencap's Snap! photo competition. It offers a unique insight into the feelings and experiences of people with a learning disability through photos and stories.
The exhibition launched on Wednesday 17 December at More London next to Tower Bridge. It will remain there until Thursday 8 January when it moves to Birmingham, Manchester and Brighton.
People with a learning disability are all individuals with their own personalities, likes and dislikes, goals and ambitions. But too often, people with a learning disability are ignored and are among the most excluded people in our society.
Every picture in This is me has been taken by or features someone with a learning disability. Each one is accompanied by the story behind the picture, or the story of its subject or photographer.
You can visit the exhibition at:
More London – near Tower Bridge, SE1 1DB, between 17 December 2008 and 8 January 2009.
Birmingham – in Chamberlain Square between 11 January and 28 February 2009.
Manchester – in Piccadilly Gardens between 1 March and 30 April 2009.
Brighton – in the city centre, details and dates to follow shortly.
