An event from the Foundation for People with Learning Disabilities & London South Bank University.

About this event

‘Welcome to The Other One Show, our live chat show to celebrate Learning Disability Awareness Week. Join us for incredible guests and live performances as we lift the lid on what makes us creative!’

To celebrate Learning Disability Week 2021, the Foundation for People with Learning Disabilities and London South Bank University are pleased to present an afternoon chat show hosted by people with learning disabilities.

Mencap‘s theme for Learning Disability Week this year is ‘Art & Creativity’. In a nod to this theme, our friends will tell you all about their creative lives and we will hear all about the lives of student learning disability nurses.

Join us for a virtual and interactive chat show style event to celebrate the creative side of people with learning disabilities and find out more about what motivates students to choose to focus on learning disability. The event is open to all and everyone is welcome!
