Save the Date - Symposium Brave, Poor (and Invisible): The Gatekeepers of Past and Future Cities

 

Friday 20th October 2017, 9.45am – 4pm (timings to be confirmed)

M Shed, Bristol, BS1 4RN

Free Event – Box Office opens one month before the event.

BSL interpreters available.

 

You are warmly invited to a symposium bringing together academics and community partners to expose and explore the often absent voices of disabled people in our collective history, as well as in our future planning.

 

If you come to this symposium expecting traditional power-point presentations and panel debates you will be in for a surprise; instead experience creative happenings, visits by robots and an opportunity to be part of a Cultural Animation installation work.

 

Find out about the process for engaging local people in research for a new exhibition at M-Shed and the crucial role creative interpretation, digital gaming and new technologies play in giving disabled people a voice in reclaiming their history and their future.
