This participatory, interdisciplinary event explores the role of disability research in making societies and cities more inclusive, socially just, spaces for all our citizens.

Working from the perspective of  social ‘coalitions’, we think critically about collaborations between diverse groups such as researchers, disabled people, activist groups, social enterprises and others, and create an intersectional space for learning from differing innovative approaches to interdisciplinary research.
