Disability Research Forum members may be interested to know that today marks the ‘online launch’ of an Arts and Humanities Research Council funded project called, Around the Toilet. This project, led by Dr. Jenny Slater, Sheffield Hallam University, is a collaboration between Sheffield Hallam University, The University of Sheffield, The University of Leeds, Greater Manchester Coalition of Disabled People, Action for Trans* Health and Queer of the Unknown Arts Collective.
Over the next few months people from these organisations will be coming together to ask what it means to have access to a safe and pleasant toilet space. Later in the year architecture students from Sheffield School of Architecture will make a public installation based on the findings of the project, to get others thinking about access and toilets.
You can find out more about the project on the project blog, or following @cctoilettalk on Twitter. The group are also asking you too join in by tweeting your own toilet stories and pictures using the hashtag #cctoilettalk or via the project blog.
