Tees Together Discussion Series


6 February 2020 5:30 pm - 6 February 2020 7:00 pm

The Social Model of Disability

What are the key topics of the day and how do we start to make change together? Tees Together is a round-table discussion series which links critical thinking, current events, politics, activism, and art practice.

In this session, we explore the Social Model of Disability. This approach recognises that barriers to participation are created by societal structures and attitudes, rather than by an individual’s abilities, and that it is the responsibility of society to adapt to achieve equality for all. Guests include Lisette Auton, Disabled artist and activist and Simon McKeown, Reader, MIMA School of Art and Design. FREE. No need to book.
