UCA's Archives and Special Collections have an exhibition and events on for Explore Archives and Disability History Month. Please pass on to anyone you feel may be interested
Re-thinking the Body is an exhibition held at the Elaine Thomas Library, UCA Farnham, and consists of work by postgraduate and undergraduate students imaginatively responding to our collections on ways that disability has been represented and (mis)understood in society and culture.
There will be an artists event on the 24th November from 18:00, with tickets available here http://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/re-thinking-the-body-new-work-inspired-by-uca-archive-tickets-19422355789
We also have a series of blog posts showing the artists work, and the process in putting together the exhibition https://ucaarchives.wordpress.com/category/re-thinking-the-body-exhibition/
If anyone wanted to contact any Creative Arts students for any projects they are working on, happy to discuss off list! Given this is an extracurricular activity, and given the students were coming up with deadlines was very pleased with the response - obviously a theme that resonated!
