Defining Disability Art Exhibition 2021

Students from the TCPID participated in the Art Exhibition Defining Disability 2021, organised by Trinity Student’s Union, Disability Service and the Ability Co-Op for Disability Awareness Week.

The Exhibition was on show in the JCR Hamilton space (student common room) from the 29th November to the 3rd of December which marked the International Day of People with Disabilities.

The aim of the exhibition was to celebrate the work of Trinity students with disabilities, raising awareness of barriers that disabled students face everyday it also revealed the immense contribution that they make to the Trinity community. The many definitions and meanings of disabilities are explored through artistic means in this student based initiative.

TCPID students reflected on important themes such as disability and human rights as part of module assignment and created their artwork to convey their message to the world. The TCPID ran an art workshop to offer space and materials to students to complete their work which included paintings, poems, photography and mixed media.

Students had the opportunity to show their work, their ideas and help other understand universal issues of inclusion.

The participation in the art exhibition was a great opportunity for TCPID students to be actively involved in the several activities organised by Trinity in occasion of Disability Awareness Week.

A podcast of the exhibition has been created and is available at this link:
