Public art and disability

Found an interesting article about using art in the UK to help people understand a little about what it means to be disabled. Who knows what affect it can have, but it's worth trying.

Interesting - thanks for sharing.

And, you are right - I am going to move this to the disABILITIES Community Board.

I like the use of the phrase "Unintended Performer". It may the the most accurate description of how I felt early on using a wheelchair. I do not think I notice it as much anymore, I tend to ignore that kind of thing now.

Thought about starting a new thread but just put this here because the source and reason for both articles are the same. Anyway, it's interesting.
