Down's Syndrome Awareness Week (UK) 15-21 March 2010

Posted Mar 18 2010 7:35am
It is Down's Syndrome Awareness Week in the UK the 15th-21st of March.

The Down's Syndrome Association here in the UK have several ways you can participate including their Shifting Perspectives Collection.

The following is from the DSA website

Shifting Perspectives

During our Awareness Week we will be celebrating the sixth year of Shifting Perspectives with the continuing support of GlaxoSmithKline.
We invite you to join us at thegallery@oxo as we launch our new collection for 2010.  As with previous collections our photographers continue to break down the stereotypes whilst raising awareness of the condition.
Oxo Tower Wharf
Bargehouse Street
London SE1 9PH
Wednesday 17th - Sunday 28th March 2010
open daily from 11am - 6pm
Admission FREE

Since 2005, Shifting Perspectives has brought together the work of twelve photographers who have a personal connection with Down's syndrome.
This exhibition examines the lives of people of all ages with Down's syndrome, their connection to the photographers and the changes throughout the course of their lives.
In many ways the work reflects a contemporary trend in documentary photography where practitioners are no longer purely objective observers with little understanding of the complexity of the situation; they are personally involved with their subject matter.

This Sunday is World Down Syndrome Day! CLICK HERE for details on how you can participate! :)
