Footsteps Festival 2021

The People Place

The People Place is all about family, carers and friends. Come to meet other people with similar experiences. Explore what people with pain – and the people around us – need, to live well despite our pain. We’re also planning some fascinating sessions exploring ‘pain in society’ – how social environment and relationships have an impact on how we experience pain.
