Through Our Eyes shares the stories of people with learning disabilities in Wales through photographs and videos. Our exhibition challenges perceptions and stereotypes by highlighting the valued roles and activities of people with learning disabilities in our communities.
Images influence the way we think about people. This can affect the opportunities that people have in life. Members of All Wales People First set out to improve how they are represented in society by creating positive and empowering photos and videos. We celebrate our achievements in employment, volunteering, sport, education and other areas of life.
Find out more about the barriers to independent living and the work that our self-advocates do to create a more inclusive and accessible world for everyone. Learn about the things that matter to our community and the importance of treating everyone with dignity and respect.
Through Our Eyes represents people with learning disabilities in their own words and as they see themselves.
