Distraction, jargon, curation and impact

I’ve been sorting out some medical kit and its been a nice distraction this afternoon but, my word, the amount of paper and jargon that goes along with it is considerable.

Then the thought occurred to me about how much of this type of stuff vanishes quite quickly and so leaves quite big gaps in our historical understanding of everyday lives.

This is true of disabled art as much as kit and is why the National Disability Arts Collective and Archive (NDACA) has been set up. NDACA is about creating a collection of disability art, including lost or hidden work and making sure they are brought into the public realm.

This is a good thing. But I hope the collection will speak to people interested in the arts generally as well as those interested in disability arts.
