Talk/Webinar, Exhibition/demonstration, Interactive activity
You are invited to participate in the ‘Disability: Alternative Explanations' event, which includes an interactive online exhibition, presentation and Q&A session. The AHRC-funded Disability Inclusion Africa project is working to improve understandings of the impact of alternative explanations for disability on disabled people, their communities, advocates and policy makers. These alternative explanations may stem from assumptions and misconceptions, traditional beliefs, religious beliefs, medical determinist, supernatural or witchcraft-related beliefs. Through international dialogue at events in across Africa and in the UK, collaborative research, fieldwork, and community engagement, the Disability Inclusion Africa project aims to bring about a step-change in the ways in which disability is understood by communities, civil society, international development and the academy. The online exhibition will enable you to explore some of the many alternative explanations for disability, presented creatively through photographic images, short films, creative writing, or as animated sketch-ups. An interactive forum will provide you with the opportunity to ask questions or to share experiences of different explanations for disability you may have encountered, which the Project Team will respond to. The event is open to the general public, as well as secondary school and university students, NGOs, charities, third sector organisations and policy makers.
