Join Museum of Liverpool’s Curatorial Fellow, Iris Sirendi, for a look into the fascinating yet often hidden stories of disability history and heritage in our collections. Explore the diverse stories of disabled people throughout Liverpool’s history, from the changing ways in which we lead our everyday lives, to some of our sporting stars. Learn where we can find disability history on display in all our collections, spanning across the decades all the way up to the modern day. From social history all the way to sports, politics and even transport, find out how we are working to uncover the rich histories of D/deaf, disabled, and neurodiverse Liverpool lives.

Curating for Change places D/deaf, disabled and neurodivergent people, like our Fellow, in curatorial roles in museums across England. Find out more about Museum of Liverpool’s role as a host museum as part of the ground-breaking work of the Curating for Change programme, whilst uncovering spectacular objects and stories of disability history in Liverpool.
