Key facts

Genre: Event with live subtitles

Synopsis

Listen to a panel discussing different perspectives on representations of disabled people. Disabled people are often portrayed as people to pity, as worthy receivers of charity or as brave and heroic, whether that’s surviving everyday life or succeeding in the Paralympics. You’ll hear from speakers who will challenge these views based on research, activism and lived experience. There will then be time for questions and conversation.

This event will have live subtitles provided by Stagetext working with MyClearText.
