Rethinking Disability Representation

Those of you who subscribe to Jim's job desk emails will have already seen this, but for those that don't...

I am pleased to be able to circulate the first update from the Rethinking Disability Representation in Museums and Galleries project.This is available as an Acrobat file by clicking here. (Please note: this is 700Kb).

Rethinking Disability Representation was initiated and is managed byRCMG (the Research Centre for Museums and Galleries in the University of Leicester's Department of Museum Studies) and is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, NESTA (the National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts), with contributions from the University and the nine (UK)partner museums involved.

This is the first of a series of project updates designed to share the outcomes and learning experiences of the project with interested parties - practitioners, policy makers and researchers working across a number of different areas; principally museums, heritage and culture but also the field of disability rights and equality.

Details and contacts for the Research Centre for Museums and Galleries can be found here.
