Thanks to funding from Historic England’s Everyday Heritage Fund, Ripon Museums have been able to work alongside two London based artists on the creation of a new exhibition exploring disability within the Workhouse.

Kate Lovell and Aisling Gallagher worked with participants from Henshaw Arts and Crafts Centre, Ripon Disability Forum and the wider Ripon community in the creation of this exhibition which can now be viewed in the dining room at the Workhouse Museum until the end of November.
