Sunday Art Talk: A Shoddy Practice

Sunday Art Talk: A Shoddy Practice


Join us for an informal art talk with Leeds-based activist/curator Gill Crawshaw


Gill has curated several exhibitions featuring disabled artists, including “Shoddy” – an exhibit that used textiles and recycled fabrics to challenge negative assumptions of disabled people.


Gill will be talking about disabled people in the art world, her work with disabled artists, as well as the lives, heritage and history of disabled people.
