Join us for:

By My Bed

An incredible exhibition featuring works by 8 Disabled artists. The works will be answering the question ‘What are the objects that make up your world?’ and present the artists’ musings about the body, accessibility, care, community, and the order, mess, and tenderness that can accumulate by their beds.
