LSBU are delighted to deliver a series of events for Disability History Month 2022 focusing on this year's theme of 'Disability, health and well-being'. The evening will take an 'in conversation' style format with two guest speakers...

Jess Thom is the co-artistic director of Touretteshero and may or may not lead a secret double life as a superhero. Artist, writer, and activist, Jess co-founded Touretteshero in 2010. She’s had tics since she was a child but wasn’t diagnosed with Tourettes until her mid-twenties. With encouragement from her friends, Jess turned her tics into a source of imaginative creativity and Touretteshero was born.

Suzanne Alleyene is a Cultural Thinker and Founder of Alleyne& - a strategic consultancy and cultural incubator. Her passion and talent lie in exploring society’s big questions to develop a more equitable society. Her current groundbreaking research project is Neurology of PowerTM, an iterative project that asks where power resides in the brain and body. A core strand of this research interrogates the relationship between power, well-being, self-care, the individual, organisations and wider society.

This event is guaranteed to give you a better understanding of wellbeing and disability in society from the perspective of both speakers. There will be an opportunity for Q&A as well as informal networking with our speakers & other guests after the event.

Please share our programme of events with anyone you feel might benefit or be interested in attending. Our event are free & open to all plus your support can help us to reach a wider audience and keep these important conversations going.
