Openstorytellers have been working with researcher Rebecca Yeo from the UK Disabled Peoples Council. Together we have worked with people with learning difficulties in Somerset to discover the what is important to them, their hopes and dreams for the future but also looking at the restrictions that exist and how things could be improved.
Participants put their ideas into drawings or photographs and have been working with research artist Andrew Bolton to combine these into a mural in Victoria Park, Frome.
The artwork was warmly received at the opening in Victoria Park. The people involved in creating the work explained their messages using words, music and the artwork itself.
