OPEN15: Sparrowhawk Art, Campaign Talk

Sparrowhawk Art, #JusticeforLB Campaign Talk

Join Prof Chris Hatton of the Centre for Disability Research, Lancaster University, Dr Sara Ryan and others at 3pm for a panel discussion on the #JusticeforLB campaign.

The #JusticeforLB campaign broadly agitates to change the way that people with learning disabilities and their families are treated and valued by society.

The talk will provide background to the campaign, and discuss how a crowdsourced project works, the success of the grass roots digital campaign and the importance of artwork as an expression of political resistance and thought.

This discussion complements and goes alongside the creative products of this community driven campaign which will be on temporary display on the ground floor of the Peter Scott Gallery, 10am-5pm on Monday 18th May.
