I've been working with actor and collaborator Tam Gilbert, Jenny Gordon and Alastair Nesbitt recently. Using Hellen Keller as a starting to explore visually-impaired women in Dorset, then and now!  Researching with source material at the incredibleresource that is Dorset History Centre in Dorchester, we've then taken students from Victoria Education College there and this week delivered some of our findings to a group of students who are home educated at the Priesthouse Museum in Wimborne.

Tam has written a grea piece for the disabityarts online blog and you can read about it here:
