One year on from the Paralympic Games – what is the positive legacy for the Cultural Sector and what are the challenges and opportunities ahead of us?

As an incubator for ideas and leader of cultural discussion within the disability context, Accentuate is keen to explore if there has been a cultural shift for disabled people one year on from the hugely successful Paralympic Games. They are partnering with The University of Brighton to bring together leaders within the cultural sector to discuss what is working well, as well as the challenges being faced. This event seeks to explore how we consolidate gains a year on from the Paraylmpic Games and map the new territory.

There will be a headline panel debate exploring how we consolidate the gains and map new territory one year on from the Paralympic Games. This will be followed by a further three panels discussing positive legacy for young people, disability history in relation to the built environment and disabled artists forging careers in the public realm.
