Nothing About Us Without Us activity day

Saturday 5 January 2019

1.00pm - 5.00pm

 

Drop in, explore the exhibition and meet some of the activists and campaigners that helped to put it together.

There is also a chance to make your own protest badge or placard and add to a collaborative banner in a printing workshop with Venture Arts.

Activities suitable for age 5+ but all ages welcome.

 

The museum is free to enter with a suggested donation of £5

 

This co-produced exhibition looks at the representation of disabled people. Discover how the museum works with groups, campaigners and individuals to collect new material and re-examine how we present the history of disability activism.

This is the first stage of the exhibition, which invites contributions – look out for a follow up exhibition coming in April 2019.

 

Suitable for 11+

Part of our year long programme exploring the past, present and future of representation, marking 100 years since all men and some women won the right to vote in Britain. Following an open call for submissions <https://phmmcr.wordpress.com/2017/10/31/represent-call-for-exhibitions/> , the 2018 community exhibition programme was selected by a panel of museum staff and members of a cross section of community groups.
