Moi aussi

Tu as tes espoirs, tu sais ce que tu veux,
Tu exploreras des terres inconnues,
Tu fais de ton mieux, au moins en grande partie,
Et moi aussi, moi aussi.

Tu as sûrement tes héros préférés,
Tu aimes la guitare, tu aimes danser et chanter,
Tu adore les fous rires et les câlins,
Et moi aussi, moi aussi.

Moi aussi, parfois je ris, j’ai peur, je doute, je rêve aussi,
Moi non plus, je n’aime pas être exclus,
Je suis ici, moi aussi.

Tu subis des petites crises de temps en temps,
Mais tu entends croquer la vie à pleines dents,
Tu connais l’amour, son pouvoir infini,
Et moi aussi, moi aussi.

Moi aussi, parfois je ris, j’ai peur, je doute, je rêve aussi,
Moi non plus, je n’aime pas être exclus,
Je suis ici, moi aussi.

Moi aussi, je mange ma soupe,
Moi aussi, j’ai peur du loup,
Moi aussi, je fais des plans,
Moi aussi, j’ai ma chanson,

Moi aussi, je sors le soir,
Moi aussi, je veux savoir,
Moi aussi, je perds la tête,
Moi aussi, je m’inquiète,

Moi aussi, je cris parfois,
Moi aussi, je saute de joie,
Moi aussi, j’ai ma propre voix,
Moi aussi, j’ai les mêmes droits,

Moi aussi, je me sens bien,
Moi aussi, je suis moi-même,
Moi aussi, je suis comme toi,
Et toi comme moi, comme toi, comme moi…

Moi aussi, parfois je ris, j’ai peur, je doute, je rêve aussi,
Moi non plus, je n’aime pas être exclus,
Je suis ici, moi aussi, moi aussi.

Press Release

01.03.17

Moi Aussi, founded in February 2017, is focused on raising awareness of Down Syndrome, with the objective of building acceptance and inclusion in the general population.

With the endorsement of ART 21 (Association Romande Trisomie 21), the official Swiss Romande organization that supports individuals with Down Syndrome and their families, Moi Aussi will be launching a public photo exhibition at Place de la Louve, Lausanne on the 19th of March, finishing on the 28th of April. The exhibition comprises 21 photographs of 21 people with Down Syndrome, all living in Switzerland, ranging in age from 6 months to 31 years of age. The photographs illustrate how people with Down Syndrome enjoy their lives in much the same way as the rest of us do.

The inspiration of the exhibition comes from Ireland where a similar exhibition called “Here I am” was launched in 2015. The exhibition and subsequent book did much to raise awareness, discussion and understanding in Ireland and it is hoped a similar result can be achieved in Lausanne and in Switzerland more broadly. When the exhibition leaves Lausanne, it will tour multiple locations around Switzerland, lasting approximately one year.

Moi Aussi is the simplest way of expressing inclusion, the key objective of the Moi Aussi organisation. Like many children, the founders daughter Emer demanded to be included from a very early age. The aspiration it that like everyone else, people with Down Syndrome will less frequently have to demand inclusion as the society in which they live becomes proactively inclusive and offers access to all of life’s opportunities

Moi Aussi was founded by Laura Mulcahy, who is originally from Ireland and has lived in Lausanne since 2005. Moi Aussi will be funded by donations from corporations and the public.
