SCLD are pleased to bring you a series of free bite sized events on topics relevant to the lives of people with learning disabilities and their families. These 2 hour sessions will take place in SCLD's offices between 10am - 12 noon.
The second session is called Lennox Castle Stories. This is a project between C-Change, the organisation set up when Lennox Castle hospital closed to support the re-settlement back into the community of 40 patients and Project Ability, an inclusive arts organisation which runs art classes for people with learning difficulties.
The project tells the forgotten stories from the former residents of Lennox Castle, over a decade after the final patients left in 2002.
At this event you will hear personally from former patients about what life was like as a resident of Lennox Castle. They will also talk about their stories of positive transformation since leaving the institution over 10 years ago. All of the artwork has been captured using a wide range of media such as writing, painting, sculpture, animation and ceramics.
This information event is free of charge!
