Stored out of Sight: Hidden History of Disabled People
Hastings Museum 16th September til 16th December 2023
Disabled people have always been part of history, but their stories have often been in the background. This exhibition, curated by Jack Guy from Curating for change Fellow, and co-produced by seven people with d/deaf, Disabled and Neuro divergent, explores objects hidden in the store that relate to Hastings disability past.
Jack Guy approached me from Curators for Change and asked to borrow my Storytelling coat for the exhibition, as a piece of current activist art.
