The Upside


The Upside is a website, a social media campaign, a resource, a celebration, a call to arms… a movement. It is a campaign that shines a light on four key aspects of life for people with Down syndrome. These are health, education, employment and life in the community. It highlights this through murals throughout the country featuring people with Down syndrome of all ages. Themes include "Don't Talk Down To Me", "Embrace Diversity" and "The Upside Wall". It also includes a podcast of a young boy interviewing our Taoiseach (Prime Minister) and our Tánaiste (Deputy Prime Minister).
