Get involved: Learning Disability Week 2024

14 June 2024

Eyes project_LD week 2024_social post.jpgLearning Disability Week (Monday 17 - Sunday 23 June 2024) is an annual campaign which raises awareness of learning disabilities, and share the experiences and perspectives of people with a learning disability.

The theme for this year is 'do you see me', which is all about the importance of being seen, heard and valued.

To mark the occasion, our learning disabilities services have developed an art project called 'eyes', that everyone can get involved with.

Here's some ideas of how you can join in too:

  • Take a photo of your eyes - be careful of the flash!
  • Draw and colour in a picture of your eyes with pens, or paints
  • Draw or write things you like doing on a picture
  • Decorate a picture with cut outs from magazines
  • Use one of the templates and decorate it: Download: template of eyes
  • Look in a mirror to see the colour of your eyes or ask a friend or carer if they can tell you
  • Or make any artwork about eyes!

When you have finished your artwork, take a photo, either of your artwork on its own or of you holding the artwork up over your face. Please email your photo to by 5pm on Friday 28 June 2024.

We would like to share the artwork that we receive so if you are happy for us to share yours, please complete the following consent form and email that with your photo: Download: consent form_easy read version

We look forward to receiving your artwork. Thank you for being part of the eyes project to celebrate Learning Disability Week 2024!
