Disability Poetics: an exploration of self-expression through poetry therapy

Life stories, art, soundscapes and poetry, confronting stereotypes and media perception of disability.

Poems that identify disability as a social construct & propagate empowerment for disabled people; rocking the boat & turning tables to create a sense of protest against the way things are usually done.

Born from participatory action research and poetic inquiry, this Creative Communities funded poetry project was piloted at Mapura Studios in conjunction with Whitecliffe College M.A.A.T.

"we believe in giving everyone a voice and recognize the potential everyone holds inside of them"
