A special Over The Edge: Open Reading as part of the Away with Words festival of creative writing for people with intellectual disabilities will take place on Thursday, October 18th, 6.30-8pm in Galway City Library. All are welcome to attend.
Away with Words is an innovative arts project which enables people with intellectual disabilities to explore and develop their creativity through writing.
