Are you fed up of how our bodies are portrayed in arts, culture and media?
Would you like the opportunity to tell your story, and learn about podcasting, in a safe space, in a workshop specifically for the Dwarf community?
To coincide with Dwarfism Awareness month 2019, Steph is running a workshop to enable Dwarf people (and our community) to develop our own voices and gain confidence in telling our stories and lived experiences. It’s a chance for us to talk about our bodies rather than being objectified, to control our own narratives rather than being mocked.
The workshop will be taking place on Saturday 19th October 2019 at ChapelFM, in Leeds, between 10am – 4pm.
- ChapelFM is a safe and relaxed venue.
- There is parking available straight outside the building.
- The venue has an accessible toilet.
- There is a lift to the first floor, chapel area.
- You can rest when need to.
- Plenty of step stools to be able to get up and down from chairs and rest feet.
- Lunch and refreshments will be provided throughout the day.
