LIFE AFTER STROKE
Local stroke survivors, carers and medical professionals share their personal and powerful experiences of stroke, and showcase the results of a project that has been part of a two year journey. The project recruited a group of core participants, volunteers and interviewees as well as 10 children from a local primary school. This project developed a creative partnership, bringing arts, heritage and health professionals together and the voices and experiences of those affected by stroke.
Barry was one of the core participants who worked with the project for 18 months. Barry was also a member of the project steering group. He had his first stroke over 10 years ago. He was 69 years old when he had his stroke. Barry is an avid Newcastle United supported, who shared his experiences of his stroke and his personal history.
