Abstract

Social inclusion is seen as a key strategy for building civic societies of diverse communities. As a result, there is increasing demand for museums to develop projects with measurable and measured impact promoting social inclusion. Currently, most of the activity relating to visitors with disabilities is about products rather than processes. This is due to different reasons, including the fact that disability studies as a distinct field developed only recently, and that anti-discrimination and human rights legislation was not put in place until the mid-1990s. This paper calls for systematic and theory-driven research into the use and understanding of exhibitions, programmes and resources with people with disabilities using the emancipatory research framework. It also discusses the implications of using this framework and the social model of disability for visitor research with particular reference to a case study conducted during the final stages of the Heritage Education for All project run by the National Trust and the Workers Educational Association in South West England.
