FREE Exhibition Offer from the National Paralympic Heritage Trust
The United Kingdom is the birth country of the Paralympic Games. It is a remarkable story that begins with a German refugee, Dr Ludwig Guttmann, and culminates in the success of today’s Games. The stories of those involved in the movement from medical staff to athletes is extremely inspiring and, as shown in London 2012, very successful in breaking down barriers and changing attitudes towards disability.
This exhibition offers you the opportunity to celebrate this history, including local content to recognize the work of paralympians, disabled sports clubs and diversity groups in your area. It will contain an introduction on the Paralympics, the story of Dr Guttmann and his revolutionary rehabilitation ideas, national and regional stories, and scope for your content.
The National Paralympic Heritage Trust is inviting offers of interest from museums to host the exhibition from June 2018. Venues should have an exhibition space of at least 20 square metres and be willing to support it with local content for at least a six week period.
Interested museums are requested to email Vicky Hope-Walker at firstname.lastname@example.org with an expression of interest including: venue name and size; proposed start date and duration of the exhibition; a supporting letter. This will enable the designers to finalise designs based on the need of the venues.
Deadline for expressions of interest: Monday 10 July 2017.
