Fashioning Inclusion brings together a diverse group of researchers and practitioners who show that bodies of all abilities and types can be a site for creative self-expression. The challenges of creating with and for different abilities offer new opportunities for experimentation with materials, technologies and aesthetics which can pioneer true innovation for art, performance, fashion and worn objects. From the iconic personal style of artist Frida Kahlo, as discussed by Curators Claire Wilcox and Circe Henestrosa, to performances with disabled and non- disabled dancers by Candoco Dance Company and inclusive design and material development by LCF students and Alumni, Fashioning Inclusion invites you to challenge pre-conceptions about who can engage with fashion, performance and bodily expression and to explore how these spaces can be further opened to be accessible to all.
The venue has limited step-free access. If you need step-free access to evacuate in an emergency, or have other any access requirements, please let us know. More detailed access information is available on our AccessAble page HERE
