Living Library - Dis-labelled, The Multiple Meanings of Disability
Barlow Room, University of Sussex Library
Nearly all of us become disabled,if only through the aging process, but how does actually living as a disabled person impact on identity and sense of self? What impact does that label have on a person’s outlook, the way they relate to society, the way society relates to them? Some choose to identify as disabled as a political position, others feel it is a label unhelpfully thrust upon them by administrative systems.
Living Library – Dis-labelled gives you an opportunity to meet people with unique, often challenging stories, and others who work with them. Visitors to the Living Library have 15 minutes for frank, open conversation, to listen, ask questions and reflect.
A BSL interpreter will be available during this event.
