From the freak shows of the early 1600s that exhibited biological deformities, people with disabilities have been thrust to the sidelines of citizenship. Access n’ Attitudes aims to highlight the disabled experience in Ireland whilst acknowledging some of the physical and attitudinal barriers that disabled communities face.
Access n’ Attitudes will be broadcast on 93.1 Life FM each Thursday for 4 weeks beginning on March 7th at 2.05pm, and repeated on the following Saturday at 5.05pm.
