World down syndrome awareness day 2017
celebrate me , the brindley
Coinciding with World Down Syndrome Day on the 21st of March, I lead a free drop in activity where visitors were invited to create their own celebratory bunting as part of a unique arts display. This event is all about celebrating the lives and dreams of people who have Down Syndrome, through creating a piece of bunting. Bunting is a decoration often used at parties which symbolises celebrations and happiness. I wanted to use this idea to help people celebrate their own lives and achievements and raise awareness of he potential people with Down Syndrome have when given opportunities.
