Celebrating Paralympic Heritage and the London 2012 Paralympic Games
Mather & Co worked with the National Paralympic Heritage Trust and Heritage Lottery Fund to continue its touring exhibition that celebrates local and national Paralympians and their contribution to Paralympic heritage. This installation at Gunnersbury Park Museum in London included a small exhibition in the Billiard Room of this former Rothschild estate.
In this fully accessible exhibition, visitors can find out how it all began with the inspirational story of Professor Sir Ludwig Guttmann and other inspiring tales of Paralympian athletes. They can also engage with local stories of sporting heroes and view iconic objects from their Paralympic stories. A key feature was a new focus on the London 2012 Paralympic Games with objects from the opening ceremony and sporting heroes from the event.
