"):”Kännbart handlar inte bara om att kvotera in oss, att ge oss en gräddfil in i konstvärlden. Det handlar inte heller bara om syn- och hörselnedsättningar. Det handlar om att vi har unika erfarenheter och unika perspektiv.”
”Det här att jag har fått vara med i Kännbart, det har gett mig så himla mycket. Det har stort att jag har vågat en massa på grund av det - jag har sökt jobb, jag har sökt kurser. Det hade jag inte vågat innan.”
”Jag har arbetat med tillgänglighet för landstinget och det är skittråkigt, för det händer ingenting. Det här projektet har åstadkommit mycket mer, på mycket kortare tid.”
”Jag har gått igenom många processer i mitt liv, men det här året med Kännbart har varit en av de viktigaste. Jag har fått tillbaka modet, självförtroendet. Projekt Kännbart har gett mig en grund.”
”Jag är stolt för att jag förändrade mitt liv!”
