Join the East End Women’s Museum, the DisOrdinary Architecture project and Manalo & White for workshops exploring how an accessible museum might look - in terms of both building and website design.
Discussions will be about access and inclusion in the widest sense – not just about functional accessibility, but rather about taking the opportunity to rethink conventional assumptions. We ask what a different kind of community-based museum could be like; what sorts of things ‘deserve’ to be collected; what kinds of stories need to be told and preserved; and what formats and spaces can open up collections to everyone.
The workshops are particularly aimed at disabled women, and women from other under-represented groups, who live in London’s East End, and at those interested in making more accessible archive and exhibition spaces. The first event will be face-to-face and focuses on physical spaces; the second will be online and explores web-based accessibility and inclusion.
Participants are welcome to attend both, or to choose one.
