East End Women’s Museum and DisOrdinary Architecture present Co-design the museum: access and inclusion workshops, Online


Price: Free


A group of women sit on the floor talking. There is a wheelchair in the foreground and yellow chairs around the room.

East End Women’s Museum is dedicated to telling the powerful stories of east London women. We want to better represent hidden lives, challenge gender inequalities and stereotypes, and empower women and girls to share their stories and find their own voice.

We are opening a new museum in Barking in 2022 and we want to hear from you. We are looking for women who have lived experience of disability to participate in our access and inclusion workshops.

DisOrdinary Architecture work with groups to co-create new and exciting ways to do disability differently in the co-design of buildings.

The aim of these workshops is to explore together what an accessible collection and space might be like. This is about accessibility and inclusion in the widest sense – not just about not having functional restrictions like steps (although we will talk about this as well), but rather about taking the opportunity to rethink conventional assumptions.

First workshop – Monday 26 July, 5-7pm
Second workshop – Friday 30 July, 5-7pm
