This arts-informed project will be co produced with carers and with adults with learning disabilities.  The project began on 1st October, 2022 and will run for 26 months. We will shortly be welcoming Dr Martina Smith, who is an alumna of the SoE EdD programme, as the Postdoctoral Research Associate for the project.
