6th Oct – Claire Cunningham’s performance, ‘Give Me A Reason To Live’

Arts & Disability Forum: Claire Cunningham’s performance, ‘Give Me A Reason To Live’, does not have any spoken words.

We at the Arts & Disability Forum would love to see deaf people there and so would Claire Cunningham herself.

I have some notes for local deaf people written by Claire. I will send these now by direct message to the deaf people who have been at other events during the Bounce! 2017 Festival.

To book tickets contact me now by DM or click this link for Eventbrite ticketing: www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/give-me-a-reason-to-live-claire-cunningham-bounce-festival-2017-tickets-37656903813?aff=ehomecard#tickets
