National Disability Arts Collection and Archive (NDACA) commissioned artist Poppy Nash, who specialises in textiles and illustration work, presents a free, drop-in creative session exploring the heritage of the Disability Arts Movement.

Poppy invites you to contribute slogans and ideas in response to the provocation ‘what does equality mean to you now?’, which she will then re-interpret into text printed onto material, in response to the barriers that disabled people have faced within the past and present. The finished work will become a disability arts banner for modern times, joining important Disability Arts Movement heritage items in NDACA’s own archive.

Visitors are encouraged to respond to NDACA’s archive with the team members, engaging in conversation and learning about the radical history of the Movement.

This event is open to the public every day from 1 to 4 March – drop in any time from 12 to 6pm; booking not required. Fully wheelchair accessible and BSL interpreted.

This event is part of Shape's second Tate Exchange programme Ghosts in the Machine, at Tate Modern from 1 to 4 March 2018.
