Want to play with Lego and find out how to make ramps for wheelchair users or pushchair access? Want to find out more about the art works? Love a pub quiz and a dance?!

Join us to find out more about the artworks displayed in the Main Hall at the Gregson - created in 2019 by people with disabilities to reflect their experiences of getting around in public spaces like shops and on holidays. Dr Leighanne Higgins and Charles Tyrer will introduce the event. This will be followed by challenges with Lego bricks, a pub quiz and Live DJ.

What is it like to shop when disabled? Celebrating the diversity of disability and prioritising ability over disability, The Marketplace and I exhibition explores disabled experiences in shops, pubs, theme parks and more. Developed from a research project undertaken at Lancaster University throughout 2019. Persons with all types of disability (i.e. learning, physical and sensory) were asked to create artwork(s) that express their individual commercial experiences. This exhibition showcases song, dance, poetry, sculptures, paintings and installations, to not only explore disabled commercial experiences but to begin to challenge preconceptions towards disability.

This exhibition will be heading this summer to the Edinburgh Festival so catch it here in Lancaster first!
