THE Way Ahead

What barriers to accessibility have you experienced in South Yorkshire?

Introducing The Way Ahead a project which explores the experiences and barriers that disabled people in South Yorkshire face at home and at work.

This is part of the wider, national project Here and Now, uniting 40 arts centres across the country to celebrate their local culture and communities.

Our project is led by artist Caroline Cardus in collaboration with three local support groups for disabled people using the subversion of familiar road sign symbols to gather experiences which will be included in a final piece of public artwork for Mandela Gardens, to be revealed in summer 2021.

But we also want to hear about your experiences!

After watching the video below explaining how to use the worksheets and once you’re done, you can share your work with us online by tagging #thewayaheadbarnsley or by emailing your image and story to [email protected].

We will we be sharing these stories on our social media channels and form a blog post in the run-up to the launch of the new artwork in the summer.

You have until the end of May to take part.
