This exhibition showcases an extensive collection of protest material brought together for the very first time. This includes banners, t-shirts, photographs, cartoons and sculpture.
“People coming to the exhibition will laugh at the satirical cartoons, cry at the appalling stories of disablist discrimination and share the triumph at the battles fought and won by disability rights campaigners dating back to the 19th century.”
Ruth Malkin, PHM Community Curator
Exhibition co-curated by four community curators who identify as disabled people and guided by a steering group who have been working with the museum since 2018.
Nothing About Us Without Us will be the most accessible exhibition that has ever taken place at PHM. A range of accessible formats have been created to enable visitors to engage with the exhibition in different ways. These include Large Print guides of the exhibition text, a British Sign Language (BSL) interpreted and captioned film of the exhibition content, an audio narration of the exhibition content, and braille transcriptions of the exhibition content, including short image descriptions of all the objects on display.
The exhibition is open from Wednesday 16th November 2022 until Monday 16th October 2023 and is included in the entry to the People's History Museum, which is free to enter but with a suggested donation of £5
