We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to Living Full Lives 2020 – an end of project event from the Living Life to the Fullest project!

The event is taking place on 21st February 2020 from 10.00-4.00pm at the Millennium Gallery, Sheffield.

The Living Life to the Fullest project is a research project which seeks to forge new understandings of the lives, hopes, desires and contributions of children and young people with ‘life-limiting’ or ‘life-threatening’ impairments (hereby LL/LTIs). Over the last three years, alongside disabled young people as our co-researchers in the Co-Researcher Collective, the project has been a space where disabled children and young people have told new stories of disability; their own stories.

We are busy working out a schedule for the day, and will update you with details in due course. The event will run from 10.00am – 4.00pm and lunch and refreshments will be provided and there will be regular breaks throughout the day.

Excitingly, on the same day we will be launching the Living Life to the Fullest Art Exhibition (title TBC), which is taking place just next door at the Winter Gardens, Sheffield. The exhibition will showcase all of the artwork produced by disabled children and young people across the project, as well as other creative endeavours that have emerged.
