Mirror Image: An Adult Protection project which will form part of Fife's programming to the Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival (1-24 October)
The aim of the Mirror Image project is to look at the word 'vulnerable' and how people feel about being described as 'vulnerable adults'. Although initially targeted it at older people and people with disabilities, it would be interesting to get everyone's viewpoint on this. We all have things which make us 'vulnerable', but sometimes it's the situation we find ourselves in, rather than being labelled 'a vulnerable adult'.
The Festival theme of 'walk in my shoes' gives you a good opportunity to tell us 'what it's like to be YOU'. Does the public sometimes have a negative view about what it's like to be a older person or someone with a disability. Let's change that. Let's create a positive image!
If you're interested in creating work for this project, please give me a call, and feel free to forward the flyer to anyone you think would be interested.
