DYSPLA_WordsNotWalls x Umbrella Project

DYSPLA is proud to announce our collaboration with the Liverpool-based ADHD Foundation, who commissioned DYSPLA to run a series of artist-led Augmented Reality [AR] poetry workshops, where children will be encouraged to devise and perform new digital poems.

Students from the Intuition School in Stoke-on-Trent are invited to participate in intuitive performance and to co-create spoken-word micro poetry, a collection of which will then be presented as A6 postcards and AR Text Art posters.

These original pieces are to be presented and distributed as part of The ADHD Foundation’s Umbrella Project, a globally-recognised public art initiative raising the awareness and understanding of Neurodiversity in children.
