Alison Lapper: being an icon
Play • 46 min

Each week, The Why Word gets under the skin of entrepreneurs, business leaders, creatives and people who make things happen to find out what makes them tick. Presented by Ian Hawkins.

In this special extended edition of the podcast, we meet artist Alison Lapper. Alison became well known as the subject of a sculpture by Marc Quinn that was prominently displayed on Trafalgar Square's fourth plinth. We discuss growing up disabled, how attitudes change and making a life as an artist.  

Recorded at Alison's home, the conversation includes discussion of mental health, bereavement and prejudice.

The Why Word is a TBD Media Group Production
