This April, eight young creatives with Tourettes Syndrome from across the country came together for Idea Amplifier, a weekend workshop organised by Touretteshero's Jess Thom, author of Welcome to Biscuit Land and Matthew Pountney.
Working with four facilitators from Touretteshero, they shot a short film, titled 'Running Away from the Circus'. Merging live action drama, animation and documentary style interviews, the film explores their thoughts and feelings about living with TS. You can find out what running away from the circus means to young people with TS by watching the video here. Idea Amplifier was made possible by support and funding from Spirit of 2012, Unlimited and Roundhouse. Image: Screenshot from Touretteshero Presents: Idea Amplifier
