Disability Murals – research using art for social change

Disabled people in different parts of the country have been getting together to paint murals in public spaces in Frome, Norwich, Bristol and London. The murals express the hopes, concerns and messages directly from disabled people, as well as being an attractive contribution to the local area.

We are working with disabled people living in a wide range of different circumstances, including so far: asylum seekers and refugees; ex-servicemen; lesbian gay, bisexual and transgender; parents; people with learning difficulties in residential settings; and young peoples’ groups.

Please take a look at our brand new website with lots of photos of the finished murals as well as the work in progress – www.disabilitymurals.org.uk .

A photographic exhibition of the work is available. Please contact us if you are interested in using this at your events.

This project is part of UK Disabled Peoples Council and funded by the Big Lottery.

We also have a new Facebook page and twitter – see links on website. Please link to us, tell us what you think and pass on to all your contacts. The next opening event will be in Bristol at the end of the month, keep in touch to find out more!

Many thanks,
