Attend a screening of a nine-minute film featuring support workers, learning disabled and autistic people discussing their relationships in a selection of moving portraits and extracts from conversations. Support is a vital part of independence for many learning disabled and autistic people, and cuts to this kind of care are detrimental to their wellbeing. The film asks what ‘care’ really means and who benefits from these relationships.
‘Who Cares?’ was created by Catherine Long and Felipe Pagini, with participants and support workers from Heart n Soul’s creative arts programme ‘Allsorts’.
The film will be followed by a conversation with those involved in the project to discuss these issues further. The film will be subtitled and the conversation afterwards will be speech-to-text transcribed. You will have a chance to ask your questions if you like.
