Event description
Join us to celebrate the life and work of Mike Oliver - who brought the Social Model of Disability to the world

About this Event

Mike Oliver died in March 2019. This is a great loss to the Disabled People’s movement. His social model analysis of Disabled People’s oppression had a profound effect on thousands of Disabled People, both in the UK and across the world, and has had a major impact on advancing the fight for full inclusion.

We will be honouring Mike in the form of mini-lectures, photographs and a number of heartfelt personal speeches. Confirmed speakers at the event include Baroness Jane Campbell, Colin Barnes, Len Barton and Michele Moore. To round it off we’re planning some entertainment that we are sure Mike would have heartily approved of.
