Curating for Change exists to create strong career pathways for d/Deaf, disabled and neurodiverse curators, currently seriously under-represented in museums. Trainees and Fellows will produce exhibitions, events and blogs, exploring disabled people's histories, while gaining skills for careers in the sector.

Join Kyle Jordan, Curating for Change Fellow, to hear how he is working to re-examine and explore the museum's collections through a new lens, digging out the stories of disabled people across time, through objects in the collections that have perhaps lain hidden or been overlooked due to lack of information
