A Monument To Moments
Two weeks ago we took over of the Barbican Centre’s Pit Theatre and surrounding spaces for two days and a night. I’ve written a detailed account of the event – Brewing in the Basement – and Guardian theatre critic Lyn Gardner has shared her perspective too.
Over the last couple of weeks some of the people who took part have been getting in touch with their reflections on the day, or to share their personal achievements. These stories could easily remain invisible so this post aims to address that, and is a testimony to the many small but often incredibly significant moments.
Please feel free to add your own achievements, connections, or reflections in the comment section below.
A moment for me was while i was having a Tic fit, Jess gave me a hug and for a moment it all felt bearable. My tics reduced to very little and i felt so much stronger, i felt able to fight this war. I know that a hug to some people may not be a lot, but to me it meant the world. I also made a friend that day which i find very challenging. Thank you to the whole Touretteshero team for putting on such a fantastic event. I can’t wait until the next one.
