Liverpool Hope University is working with DaDaFest Young Leaders to look at how disabled people have been represented in TV, art, film, books, magazines over time. The workshop is an opportunity to share experiences and meet new people through exploring preconceptions about what disability is and means to different people. You will work with professional artists to develop ideas and create a visual representation to inform future working practices at DaDaFest and beyond. You will also then be able to keep the end results!
