Performance artist, Curtis Watt worked with Stroke Survivors in association with The Stroke Association. The group ran for six weeks and ended with a performance at the Liverpool Central Library. This What’s Your Story? creative writing course enabled stroke survivors to tell their story about the impact of stroke and life after stroke. The celebration event was held at The Central Library, the night was full of inspirational stories and poetry from the group.
Kate Charles. Stroke Association Coordinator:
'The project was a huge success and we hope to work more with WoW in the future. The participants of the ‘What’s your story’ project have gained in confidence and developed some hidden talents and skills. Being able to share their stories has really helped them emotionally in their recovery from stroke. Curtis was fantastic with the group and really did get the very best out of them in such a short space of time. They all showed courage and inspiration beyond any of our expectations and we are proud of their achievements. All of the amazing work they produced has shown that there is life after stroke and they all achieved something that they maybe never thought would be possible.'
