Event description

Description

This conference brings together grass roots organisations, heritage institutions and academics to discuss disability heritage and history. This year we will hear presentations and discuss the history and meaning of play, enjoyment and games. These are important for all; but especially so for people who are frequently defined by their perceived inability to work.
