Disability History Month 2023
- Thursday 16 November (00:00) - Saturday 16 December 2023 (23:59)
16 November to 16 December is Disability History Month and the University will be exploring the theme of 'Disability, Children & Youth’ with a comprehensive programme of events.
“It focusses on the Experience of Disablement amongst children and young people in the past, now and what is needed for the future…. Most important in bringing about positive change is how we think about impairment and disablement.” - UKDHM
The programme provides an opportunity for everyone in our University community to come together to increase our understanding and to show our support for disability equality. We will be drawing upon expertise and lived experience both locally and internationally to challenge perceptions, shape the debates, and explore what disability and inclusivity really mean in the twenty first century.
