Let Loose - a writing project

I'm often caught up with planning and organising so this project is an opportunity to stand back and think about what we do and the experiences people have.  It was suggested the other day that a lot of my work is about providing opportunties to interpret artworks and to share these thoughts.  These opportunities to share interpretations and experiences might be very important.
This gave me a different understanding of a recent writing project I ran for people with hearing loss. The project was based at Dancebase and over six months we saw a lot of dance together, talked about it and shared stories.

You can read the work produced here:

Last year in Edinburgh Festivals we ran a project, Postcard Reviews, for the same group working with a writer to review arts events from their personal experience.  Could participants' writing be one way of authentically representing experiences?
