Please join us on Human Rights Day 2021 and for Disability History Month to celebrate a new mural for Bristol.

The mural has been designed by Deaf people, Disabled people and asylum seeking people in Bristol with artist Andrew Bolton and researcher Rebecca Yeo.

The mural shows the barriers we face, and how we hope things can change if we can work together.

Meet some of the team, learn from their experiences and enjoy some refreshments.

There will be BSL interpreters and audio description of the mural.
