Selected Healthcare Area: Stroke survivors

How are you feeling? A community poetry project for stroke survivors in Sussex

This community poetry project focused on the thoughts and behaviours evoked by having and recovering from a stroke, in order to shape positive healing, adjustment and supportive community among stroke survivors and their relatives and carers. After initial planning in 2010, a project team consisting of a St.Leonards-based performance poet and three academic staff from the University of Brighton secured access to several stroke clubs in Sussex in 2011.
