It was a celebration of all our disabilities in this poetry workshop with Gabriella Gay and Adrian McKenzie with the theme of: ‘I am’. Aimed at young people with disabilities, this workshop was open to anyone who wants to share their uniqueness. While the session itself focused on poetry, we encouraged anyone who enjoys writing, in any of its many forms, to take part.
Storyhouse’s Young Leaders are running this event. They feel passionate about not only bringing disability awareness to more people but also letting those who feel their voices have gone unheard be heard through their writing.

Adrian McKenzie is a slam winning performance poet from Stoke-on-Trent. His works provoke the listener to consider their perspectives on social and personal themes
