THE LYME MUSEUM AT A GLANCE

When illnesses and disabilities are invisible, and when they are contested, how can museums represent them? How can they make the invisible visible?

 

This is the premise of The Lyme Museum , a virtual museum with touring exhibitions making the invisible visible. This museum uses the social model of disability and storytelling to address the question of body normality and healthiness, and to give a platform to those who have been rendered voiceless.

 This museum is here to gather stories and amplify voices.

The Lyme Museum is an initiative to build a virtual museum with touring exhibitions sharing the lived experience of invisible illnesses and disabilities. We are here to make the invisible visible.

'We cannot fight all the battles. But, we cannot fight one battle and ignore the one next to us'

Dr Angela Stienne
