Shape Arts: Social Model of Disability

‘The Social Model holds that a person isn’t ‘disabled’ because of their impairment, health condition, or the ways in which they may differ from what is commonly considered the medical ‘norm’; rather it is the physical and attitudinal barriers in society – prejudice, lack of access adjustments and systemic exclusion – that disable people.’

See Shape Arts resource on the Social Model of Disability – useful for artists or curators keen to make their work more accessible, or those working in organisations.
