Outside Voices: Poetry Reading.
“We are smooth and soft like ice cream on a hot day.”
“We are a collective of poets with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Our normal might not be your normal. We occupy new dimensions. We are about advocacy, empowerment, out-of-the-box-thinking and disability pride. We chose our name because we believe that VOICES from the OUTSIDE deserve to be heard. We believe in access. We will not use our quiet, inside voices to get your attention.
