(Dis)ability from Achilles to Zeus: Body Positive at the Ure Museum

Working with community partners including Reading Mencap, the Ure Museum has been looking at positive histories of disability in the ancient world.  Our interactive pop-up display will demonstrate some of the findings of this Community Fund supported project, and also showcase the progress we have made in developing the resource outcomes from the group’s work to make our wonderfully visual and tactile collection accessible to all. This will include our Makaton Monthly Mondays scheme and our proposed sensory trail around the museum.
All are welcome to this drop-in session.
