Ripon Museum Trust has been awarded grant funding by Historic England to uncover the stories of disabled people at the Workhouse Museum.

As part of this project, we would like to welcome participants to join us on Saturday 24 June between 10am & 12.30pm at the Workhouse Museum for an open session with London and Hertfordshire based artists Kate Lovell and Aisling Gallagher.

Taking inspiration from the lives of disabled people we will be making artwork that responds to the language of disability and its evolution through history.

This is a free event and is open to people of all ages and abilities.
