Event description

Description

In April 2015, Li had an accident which caused her to lose one leg "and the other a little". The accident and the consequent trauma caused a sudden and drastic shift in Li's experience of her own body... but not in the ways in which you might expect.

In this September's edition of The Uncomfortable Truth, we listen to one Londoner's experiences of navigating mental health, sexuality and privilege before and after having an accident which left her both disabled and more able.

ATTEND THIS TALK

If you would like to hear this talk live, mingle with the attendants and join in the Q&A and discussion, please RSVP on the event page. Tea and snacks provided.

ABOUT OUR MEETUPS

The Uncomfortable Truth is a not-for-profit project which aims to create diverse, inclusive communities by giving a voice to speakers who are "othered" in mainstream society, helping individuals and communities to better connect and understand each other. After a +/- 45-minute talk, attendants will be invited to join in the discussion, ask questions to the speaker and the room, and share their own experiences.

ABOUT PRICING

When attending the Uncomfortable Truth, we encourage you to contribute £10 - £15 for each talk (if you can, no one turn away for lack of funds). The first £80 go to the Speaker, the next £140 towards the cost of the venue, and whatever is left towards the food and the organisers.

Cash and PayPal payments are accepted at arrival.

ABOUT THE VENUE

We will be in the Regent's Room of the Old Diorama Arts Centre, closest tube stations Euston and Warren Street.

The venue is spacious and easily (wheelchair) accessible throughout. There is a lift up to the first floor, where you will find the Regent's Room. On all floors, surfaces are level and there are disabled toilets on site. Let is know if you need anything.

ABOUT OUR FACEBOOK GROUP

Our Facebook group is where speakers, organisers and community members share their favourite content sources, have discussions, ask open questions, and share information about our talks and podcasts.

Join us!


We look forward to meeting you!
