Monday 18th-Sunday 24th May 2020 marked Scotland’s Learning Disability Week. Scottish PEN supported the week by highlighting writers with learning disabilities and accessible tools to support multi-sensory storytelling.May 20, 2020
People with learning disabilities are under-represented in many sections of society, and the arts is no different. For Scotland’s Learning Disability Week, we were keen to highlight the talents of writers with learning disabilities, and to share accessible resources to encourage others to express themselves creatively. It’s important that access to the arts is available to all, and that diverse life experiences are given a platform in the Scottish literary scene. The videos and resources below offer a snapshot of the creative talent in Scotland – we’d be happy to add to this page (please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org) and will continue to promote the work of people with learning disabilities wherever we can.
