Has Institutionalisation Ended?, a symposium and performance at Shoreditch Town Hall

Access All Areas and Baroness Sheila Hollins invite you to a symposium on the history of institutionalisation of people with learning disabilities, alongside a performance of MADHOUSE re:exit at Shoreditch Town Hall.

The symposium seeks to raise public awareness and debate on the effects that isolation and confinement has on people with learning disabilities.

It will question the 'history' of institutionalisation, asking whether the closure of long-stay hospitals has ended institutionalisation, or if contemporary isolation at home has similar physical and mental effects.
