Can you make accurate presumptions based on limited knowledge? Find out at the Human Library, when you will be encouraged to pick a book based purely on its title. The story will then be read aloud by an Expert by Experience, and you can see if it matched your expectations. Afterwards, there will be a chance to speak to an Expert by Experience and chat through your thoughts and questions.

There will also be other interactive elements, such as the Multiple and Complex Needs Wallpaper, and Emoji Photo Booth. You can take and share photos, which will help you question if there is more to a story than meets the eye, and what Multiple Disadvantage looks like.

Booking: Open to the public. Just turn up on the day!

It is a pop-up photography exhibition which is being organised by beneficiaries at the WY-FI Project. They’re being supported by volunteers and staff, some of whom also have lived experience of Multiple Disadvantage in the areas of homelessness, addiction, re-offending and mental ill-health. 

They’ll each be exhibiting their own work – a photograph they’ve taken themselves that represents their personal journey of recovery from Multiple Disadvantage. 

Booking: Open to the public. Just turn up on the day!

Multiple Disadvantage Day comes to Blackpool #seethefullpicture

Where is it? 

7.30am – 9.30am Bickerstaffe Square / Sainsburys 

12.00 – 14.00 St Johns Square, down Church St to Comedy Carpet

16.00 – 18.00 Comedy Carpet, St Johns Square, Bickerstaffe 

What is it? 

As part of a national campaign across all 12 fulfilling lives projects, the Blackpool Service is hosting a lively and engaging approach (as you would expect). There are a series of animations taking place across Blackpool Town Centre on 3rd July. The animations will involve a large seagull and dinosaur engaged in various visually impactful activities, with a team of people giving out tip cards with the #seethefullpicture hashtag on them. There is a serious message here although we want to create curiosity from the public about what it all means – reducing the stigma that people who have multiple disadvantage feel, meaning they are more likely to accept help.
