Every year World Down Syndrome Day is celebrated on 21 March and is a global awareness event, celebrating Down’s syndrome and focus on a particular issue. This year, the global theme is “Leave no one behind.” All people with Down syndrome must have opportunities to live fulfilling lives, included on a full and equal basis with others, in all aspects of society.
“Don’t Stop Me Now!” seeks to highlight the ways which people with Down Syndrome of all ages achieve and enjoy life. This video project lets the fulfilling lives of young people with Down Syndrome do the talking. It holds up a mirror to society and dares the viewer to challenge everything they thought they knew about Down
The project is created and published by the parent-led Down Syndrome awareness organisation “Wouldn’t Change a Thing” which exists to create a world where negative, outdated perceptions of Down Syndrome are a thing of the past.
