Meet Iggy

Iggy has a condition called Trip 12, which can lead to intellectual disability, language and autism.

‘I have days that are about accepting and being really grateful that he is exactly who he is. I think he’s just incredible, and that’s definitely a part of the genetic condition so in a weird way I’m also grateful for it.’


Same but Different uses the arts for positive social change by working in partnership with organisations, communities and individuals to highlight inequalities and bring communities closer together. www.samebutdifferentcic.org.uk
