The Bloomsbury Festival is a creative celebration of art, culture and science which takes place each October with over 130 events held over five days. This year’s events are inspired by the theme LANGUAGE, and UCL will open the gates of the Main Quad on Saturday 22nd October from 11am – 5pm to host a range of exciting activities “Beyond Words – A day to play with a sideways slant on language”.
UCLU Giving Voice are proud to be involved and support the UCL Communication Clinic in raising awareness about the challenges of living with aphasia. We will be helping the public get involved with an interactive art exhibit about “Lost Words”; surveying the public about how they feel communicating with people who have aphasia; and facilitating the interaction of artists who have aphasia with the public as they display their artwork.
UCLU Giving Voice members will have EXCLUSIVE PREFERENCE in being able to volunteer for this event. We will be holding some optional drop-in lunchtime training before the event for anyone who is super-keen but a bit nervous about the opportunity to support people living with aphasia.
Become a Giving Voice member today and look out for the email on Tuesday 18th October with instructions for how to volunteer for the Bloomsbury Festival and details about training.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch via social media.
