Speaking Engagements

Thames Valley Neuromuscular Clinic Family Education Day @ TVCC

I headed over to my old stomping ground, the Thames Valley Children’s Centre this morning to deliver at keynote address at the Neuromuscular Clinic Family Education Day. For this morning, I did things a bit differently, incorporating some of the work Clara and I have been doing on Cripz: A Webcomic to talk a bit more about the disability rights movement and creative activism. The presentation went off great with some great questions afterward. Good to see some familiar faces and to meet some new ones as well!
