“Documenting Disability: Policy, Politics and the Personal"
Curated by Dr Anna Claydon (University of Leicester), this day anticipates the coming International Disability Day on December 3rd by instigating debates around disability, policy and politics (chaired by Paul Darke, 10am) and asking why we need an international disability day (led by the Leicester Centre for Independent Living, 6pm). Throughout the day, we will also be examining representations of disability within communities, with a photographic exhibition around disability in Northern Cyprus by DMU PhD student Damla Nailer and a screening and discussion of University of the Arts’ PhD reader Pratap Rughani’s documentary film Justine (11.30, re-shown at 4.30 but without the discussion). During the afternoon (2-4pm), speakers from the University of Leicester, De Montfort University and elsewhere will deliver a punchy ‘peccha kucha’ style event presenting new research on disability, its representation, and social engagements with ideas around disability.”
There are limited FREE spaces available, so book now and join us on Disability Policy Day!
When & Where
Leicestershire Centre for Integrated Living is a disabled people's user led organisation. LCiL aim to do this by promoting the benefits of disabled people, providing or encouraging the provision of services that facilitate independence for disabled people in daily living activities and in active participation and full integration into society. LCiL operate within the framework of the social model of disability in which disability is a problem of exclusion from ordinary life, rather than a medical impairment.
LCiL Events are a team who provide the management of Exhibitions and Conferences specialising in Disability and Equality. We have a comprehensive understanding of accessibility and will ensure your event promotes best practice throughout.
