Hi, having experienced mental health issues for many years myself I feel particularly clise to this project. Also as an amateur electronic musician, I fully understand the therapeutic help that can come from the expression of ones feelings through creating. An idea i have is to include creating music as part of the project. Having both professional musicians and amateurs like myself get involved to attempt to inspire and support young people through music. If Alison or others involved are interested, feel free to email me at [email protected] Have as good a day as you can!
In the past few years, I have been so touched by Alison Lapper's experience, especially when you had the chance to meet with Parys, an amazingly gorgeous and so kind young man, her son. I had the pleasure of meeting with Alison several times, she is an amazing woman and a so talented artist. I am thrilled to be part of this project with my contribution and being able to help people who are struggling with mental health. Art is the best healthy way to heal the world. Thank you ever so much, Alison. Lots of hugs! Albertino.
I have followed Alison and Pary's story over the years through the Child Of Our Times programme and I think this is a wonderful tribute to the memory of her beautiful boy. Art helped me through the first lockdown when I lost my dad and didn't know where to turn. Good luck with this amazing project.
Wishing you all the very best and a massive amount of love for this project. Holly
