Choosing the Path

Exhibits tell stories. This exhibit tells about the changing lives of people who have mobility impairments. It is shaped by real world artifacts from our partners. It is driven by the stories of the people who use technology to access Canadian society.

 Going down one path - the path of the unchanging wheelchair - takes us to stories which were often told about people with mobility impairments. Going down another path takes us to twentieth century changes in which people with mobility impairments wrote their own stories.

 Both paths take us to questions about how technology and societal attitudes interact to give or to take away access.
