The voices of disabled people are often missing from histories of disability. This is certainly the case in the historical collections at Wellcome Collection. We want to make sure it doesn’t continue to happen, so we are offering disabled people a platform to share their priorities, their concerns and their lived experiences of health through stories as told by them.
In My Own Words
I'm a 25-year-old autistic artist from Manchester. I have just moved from my first home away from my parents to a new apartment.
Artist Lil Sullivan returns to the printmaking workshop for the first time after her stroke, and uses broken and discarded everyday objects to create art.
As a 35-year-old man, I am sure that my fear of getting old is not uncommon. But for me, that fear goes deeper. I have spina bifida.
I’m a disabled Asian woman, and mother of four. I’m trying to show people that we have to talk about disability if we want things to change.
