This display explores the history of disabled people’s activism and the ongoing fight for rights and inclusion.

The colourful display includes banners, t-shirts, photographs, cartoons and sculptures. It also features a great collection of protest material – brought together for the very first time at this exhibition.

The collection has been curated by four people who identify as disabled and will be the most accessible exhibition that has ever taken place at PHM. The exhibition can be experienced with Large print guides, in British Sign Language, by audio narration and braille transcriptions. There will also be short image descriptions of all the objects on display as well as lots of accessible events and activities running alongside the exhibition.

Make your way to the People’s History Museum to see this landmark exhibition.
