A festival of stories around hidden disabilities in heritage

You will get insights online on what life was like for people living with hidden disabilities in the past, what changes and progress was made across the centuries to improve their quality of life and develop a more inclusive world and how the experience may have been different in different countries. Events on offer include outdoor blind people in Edwardian Scotland, the Foundling Hospital’s work with learning disabled children in the 18th century, the impact of epilepsy on the writings of Lewis Carroll and the changing design of hearing aids across the centuries and how some people wielding a hearing trumpet viewed it as a form of power!

#HidHeritageFest will run, online, on Saturday 1st August 2020, bringing to your home international experts and speakers from the worlds of heritage, medical and disability history and the arts.
