These items will then be collected in our Virtual Museum. Each speaker will talk for 10 minutes about their artwork, film or piece of writing and why this has been selected for the Museum. There will then be an opportunity for those attending this event to ask questions about the work or the wider themes of eugenics in both it’s past and future form. Confirmed guest contributors include:

Tanvir Bush, novelist, photographer and researcher

Esther Fox, visual artist, museum facilitator and researcher

Liz Crow, artist-activist working in film, audio, text and performance

Nabil Shaban, Jordanian-British actor, writer and theatre director

Emmeline Burdett, writer and academic

This event is part of the D4D mini festival 2-9 July 2021, which celebrates the end of a 5-year research project investigating the evolving ways in which we as disabled people express, perform, experience and practise ‘community’. Funded by the AHRC’s Connected Communities stream, D4D consists of a number of different contributing projects exploring diverse areas such as robotics, the arts, education, employment, genetics and gaming.
