Just As Important
Sunday 10th February 2013

Despite current equality legislation and more awareness  of the issues faced by those with learning disabilities, many of those affected continue to face ignorance and unfair treatment.

Relationships, retail, leisure and difference are all examined during several short scenes devised by the group to draw attention to the prejudice that people with learning diabilities continue to face today.

We were honoured to be invited to perform this piece at the 'Change a Little, Change a Lot' conference, held in the Cultulann here in Derry City. The audience included several VIPs, including our Mayor. We are delighted to say that our piece was very well received indeed!
