Birmingham 2022 Festival presents

Posted on 23rd March 2022

Personal Best- My race. My path. My pace. My choice. My voice.

A Creative City Project generously funded by Birmingham City Council

Advocacy Matters have been chosen, alongside 106 other community groups, to receive a Creative City project grant, thanks to funding from Birmingham City Council. In partnership with Blue and White Creative, delivered by the Bostin’ Creative Arts & Theatre team, Advocacy Matters are making a short film, which will be screened and shared as part of the Birmingham 2022 Festival.

Personal Best has been inspired by the stories, reflections and hopes of five participants at different stages in their lives, who are challenged, not only by their disabilities, but by the limitations society imposes upon their day to day life. It is a film about lived experience and optimism – hitting the wall, but how to go about pushing through and onward, towards a more inclusive, represented future.

Their track. They set the pace, given the space.
