Aphasia is a complicated condition and it can be difficult for people to understand the impact it can have on people’s lives. Aphasia can happen to anyone at any age. We are spreading the word about our vital support for the ongoing recovery from aphasia after stroke or brain injury.
It’s great to spread the word about aphasia and our charity in Devon Life magazine. Sandhy and Emily talk about their experience of communication difficulties and how our charity has supported them.
What a fantastic turn out we had for our 2nd year party! It was a great occasion to celebrate everything that we do. Thank you to everyone that came along to join us. Watch our video.
Plus we had a fantastic performance of the singing group with tarantulas! Our own Aphasia Song, written by Emily, rounded off our entertainment and, as always, Sam made sure we all had great fun with music and singing.
We had a taster of our art exhibition. The art work was previously shown at the Pheonix Art Centre in Exeter for a month in March and received much praise. Working with Magic Carpet has been a joy this year allowing us to “mess about ” with different artistic mediums to express ourselves.
So many people have celebrated personal achievements over the last 2 years with us. We are thrilled!
We welcome newcomers or visitors at any of our events over the year. We are all looking forward to another wonderful year of fun, support and friendship.
Time has flown by over the last two years since we started as a charity! We’ve grown in numbers and have formed a real community of people who understand aphasia. Plus we now run 3 successful groups– our conversation drop in, singing and creative art sessions.
To celebrate we are having a 2nd year anniversary party to showcase all that we do for people with aphasia and their families. If you missed our art exhibition at the Phoenix you can see it again here. Plus we’ll have our Aphasia Choir performing for us. As always, we’ll have cake and refreshments too. Everyone’s welcome to come along.
It’s all happening on Tuesday 4th June at the X Centre, Commercial Rd, Exeter EX2 4AD from 2-4pm. Here’s to many more years!
Whoever would have thought that Lego could be used so creatively! One of our wonderful artist from Magic Carpet is holding a one off creative session for Living with Aphasia on Thursday 23rd May. We’ll be thinking about how our environment and city might look – what would our ideal future look like? How could we make a world that is good for people with aphasia! Sounds like a great idea!
