Join us for a special WORD! in celebration of this year’s International Day of Disabled Persons. The event will imagine a present and future that is accessible for all without exception and explore this year’s IDPD theme of inclusive development and the role of innovation in fuelling an accessible and equitable world.

With an open mic and specially curated line-up featuring the brightest cutting edge of the (dis)ability arts community. Every aspect of performance will be conceived of for access to expression, to include multiple forms of language within diverse ability.

If you’d like to perform as part of the open mic – email: hello@wordpoetry.co.uk
