Dis:cover hidden disability history
On the 15th and 16th of March, Colchester Museums play hosts to the Dis:cover! conference. This event will focus on attitudes towards disability and heritage, whether disabled people feel history is relevant to them, and whether they feel part of it.
A variety of speakers will attend, including disabled actor Mat Fraser, talking about his research into "the social construct that is disability".
The hidden histories of disabled people, and disability in film, are also part of the programme.
The conference costs £50 per day, or £85 for a two day booking. Email
