Through extensive life history interviews transcribed into poetry cycles, Electric Bodies reveals unique insights and epiphanies about disability, identity, art and the society in which we live.

This celebration will feature a live reading from Electric Bodies by Allan Sutherland; a panel discussion on what we learned about recording our history with Colin Hambrook, Vici Wreford Sinnott and Allan Sutherland; and speeches and networking to showcase and celebrate the book and the artists involved.

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.

Find out more about D4D events on the D4D website.
