REFRAMING DISABILITY : PORTRAITS FROM THE ROYAL COLLEGE OF PHYSICIANS .

A TRAVELLING EXHIBITION EXPLORING FOUR CENTURIES OF HIDDEN HISTORY WITH RESPONSES FROM DISABLED PEOPLE TODAY .  CO-FUNDED BY : SUPPORTED BY SHAPE , WELLCOME TRUST , HOSTED BY: SPEAKING UP FOR DISABILITY .INDEPENDENT LIVING TRUST ,ROYAL COLLEGE OF PHYSICIANS .

IN 2010 27 DISABLED INDIVIDUALS FROM ACROSS THE UK CAME TOGETHER TO VIEW AND DISCUSS THE PORTRAITS . THE GROUP WERE INVITED TO BE FILMED AND TO HAVE THEIR PHOTOGRAPHIC PORTRAITS TAKEN ,WHICH FORM PART OF THE EXHIBITION .

MANY QUESTIONS EMERGED FROM THE DISCUSSIONS : ARE WE STILL AS CURIOUS ABOUT DIFFERENCE AS WE WERE 200 YEARS AGO? ARE THERE MORE POSITIVE IMAGES OF DISABLED PEOPLE TODAY ? DO CONTEMPORARY DISABLED PEOPLE HAVE MORE CONTROL OVER HOW THEY ARE REPRESENTED ?

.`…..WE PICK UP ON THE HEROS AND THE TANNI GREY -THOMPSONS ( THE PARALYMPIAN )…..WHO DO GREAT FEATS . BUT NOT THE ORDINARY EVERYDAY KIND OF IMAGE OF DISABILTY .`AIDAN MOESBY
