‘SPAZ’

Spoken word poetry

Rowan is a poet with a specific learning difficulty, but is often perceived as disabled.
His poem ‘SPAZ’ deals with issues such as labels, self identity and a lack of understanding within society around learning difficulties and disabilities.
Rowan’s challenging story asks questions about how we as society judge individual worth; exploring an individual’s choice of when to wear a label and when not to.
