Abstract

This project is a collaboration between those living with Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD), the FASD Network, and Teesside University’s arts and health researchers and students. Together we are working on approaches to interactive performances and events that will connect young people across the North East UK with the latest research on the cause, symptoms, prevalence and real life experiences of FASD. The project is being developed through a people-centred approach to health research; uncovering real stories and facilitating a critical engagement with the underlying research that supports public campaigns. The project continues a long standing collaboration between FASD Network and Teesside University that has seen the success of two creative projects - an animation and performance - each raising awareness of the invisible disability, FASD. This project facilitates an informed critical response to research. It also looks to facilitate the connection between people who live with FASD and the wider community, reaching many more young people in the North East where alcohol misuse is the highest in the UK.

This performance was commissioned by Middlesbrough Borough Council and sponsored by Thirteen Group, performed at Middlesbrough Town Hall November 2018.
