Invalid Carriage Research Project

Posted in General News on Wednesday, December 12th, 2018

The artist, Simon Mckeown, continues to look into the history of invalid carriages and those who used them through his lottery funded research project, ‘The Carrying of Passengers is Forbidden’ and he has now opened an exhibition to showcase some of the material that he has collected so far. The exhibition is called ‘No Passengers’ and it opened at St George’s Hall in Liverpool on 21st November. Simon has another exhibition taking place at the Museum of Liverpool which includes an AC Acedes Invalid Carriage. This exhibition forms part of DaDaFest International, the event which celebrates disability arts. As a result of these exhibitions Simon hopes to encourage people to share their own stories of invalid carriages so that they can be recorded for posterity. If you have a story to share then please send it to using the subject title “Where are they now”.
