Katherine - Our Memory Lanes

#DoThinkShareDAW Daily Challenge, Tuesday 16th May

My item is a flyer from an Edinburgh Fringe Festival show I helped organize back in 2005

This was a total game changer for me. We supported ten adults with learning disabilities through a seven night show at Venue 45 in Edinburgh and they stormed it. On day one everyone hid behind me on Princes Street while I gave flyers out – a few days in and everyone’s confidence had grown tenfold and we were attracting a full house every night. Some of the performers went on to develop dementia and I remember one chap in particular who would always do the signing for dancing when he saw me. The memory of where we’d been and what we’d done together was that strong.
