This event has unfortunately been cancelled due to staff sickness, we're currently looking at a time to reschedule it. 

This informal talk will look at how NML treats objects in its care, discussing how and why objects have value, and the art of Kintsugi, which adds value to damaged objects. It will then compare this to how we think about health and wellbeing. How do we value an object, especially one in a collection? Similarly, how do we value people, including ourselves? How do we consider a person’s worth? What would happen if we took a holistic approach when considering a person’s value rather than just what they were “worth” to society? Join us for a vibrant discussion on this topic with NML colleague and disability rights activist Gillian Ashcroft-Smith.
