A creative workshop for Disabled and neurodiverse people to share their experiences of shielding, lockdown and COVID.

About this event

Welcome to Shielded In The Community, a Disabled-led project run in partnership with DaDa Fest and funded by Liverpool City Council.

My name is Mandy Redvers-Rowe and I’m a disabled writer based in Liverpool. I’m working with producer Harriet Warnock and Assistant Producer Robyn Bowyer. Together we’re delivering this project with a wonderful team of disabled and neurodiverse artists.

All of us had to shield in 2020 and 2021 – but although for many the restrictions have now been lifted, there are still a significant number of people who have to continue to shield.

If you are a Disabled and/or neurodiverse person and you live in the north-west of England, we would like to invite you to take part in this project by responding artistically to your shielding experience - whatever your shielding status.

You'll have the chance to work with Spoken Word Artist Amina Atiq, Musician Malik Lidgett and Filmmaker Ellen Purse to share your experience creatively and input into a collective artwork which will act as an archive of experience.
