On Tuesday 7 June, the Making Every Adult Matter coalition launched a new exhibition sharing the ideas and perspectives of people with multiple needs and those who support them.

Designed with the help of participants in Voices from the Frontline, a project led by MEAM’s embedded policy team over the last two years, the exhibition tells stories about the challenges people are facing, and the lessons that policymakers can draw from their experiences.

At the opening reception, there were contributions from Dr. Adrian Phillips, Director of Public Health for Birmingham, and Richard Harris, an expert by experience from co-organisers Birmingham Changing Futures Together, who created a new painting for the exhibition.

The exhibition will stay open until the end of June, and is open to the public during working hours at BVSC, The Centre for Voluntary Action, 138 Digbeth, Birmingham B5 6DR (directions).

We’ll be sharing more from the exhibition over the coming month. We’ve also made the panels from the exhibition available as a PDF here for you to download.

Thanks to Richard and everyone else involved throughout Voices from the Frontline, and also to our partners Birmingham Changing Futures Together and Soapbox, who designed the exhibition.

MEAM’s work on policy affecting people with multiple needs continues thanks to the support of the Lankelly Chase Foundation, and we look forward to continuing to work with many of the people and organisations involved in Voices from the Frontline.
