#MoreThanPanto is our way of reminding others that dwarfism is a normal, everyday thing – 24/7, 365 days – and celebrating all the ways in which people with restricted growth contribute to our society. Why not join members of our committee in supporting our social media campaign, by posting on Facebook and Twitter to help spread awareness?

If you have ideas for workshops or activities that you would like to see at this year’s convention, then it’s not too late to let us know. Contact our event organisers at:
