Us and Our Health
A collaborative project by:
Women and Theatre
Worcestershire Adult and Community Learning Disability
North East Worcestershire College.
Us and Our health presents an engaging and refreshing look at
the complexities of identity and tells stories revealing the ways
in which adults with learning disabilities see themselves and their
health. The performance was accompanied by a post-show
The performance represented the culmination of collaborative
work between award winning Women and Theatre, adults with learning
disabilities from Day centres across Worcestershire and the theatre
and the Community Foundation Degree students from North East
This DVD is a record of the process and also a training resource
that is designed to raise awareness and promote discussion around
health inequalities faced by adults with additional needs.
