Our words

We enjoy being artists
With hidden talents
Making amazing work

It doesn’t matter what we are
There’s no such thing as can’t
Measuring our ability
Not our disability
Finding who we are
Without judgement
Valuing everyone
Being seen
Gives me self worth
Feels like I have purpose
15 Days makes me happy
Makes me smile

“The words of power were scattered onto the poster sheets in a series of enquiry sessions. I’ve tried to distil their essence into this poem giving it a simple structure, adding just the odd word and, I hope, representing some of the experiences shared by everyone.”
