What is it like to shop when disabled? Celebrating the diversity of disability and prioritising ability over disability, this exhibition explores disabled experiences in shops, pubs, theme parks and more. Developed from a research project undertaken at Lancaster University throughout 2019. Persons with all types of disability (ie learning, physical and sensory) were asked to create artwork(s) that express their individual commercial experiences. This exhibition showcases song, dance, poetry, sculptures, paintings and installations, to not only explore disabled commercial experiences but to begin to challenge preconceptions towards disability.
