Celebrating Paralympic Heritage in the Community
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 Cliffe Castle incorporated small exhibitions in different locations across its main museum and gardens for visitors to encounter on site.
In this fully accessible exhibition, visitors could find out how it all began with the inspirational story of Professor Sir Ludwig Guttmann and other inspiring tales of Paralympian athletes. They could also engage with local stories of sporting heroes and view iconic objects from their Paralympic stories. A key feature was the suspension of Paul Cartwright’s sports wheelchair at high level in the historic greenhouse space which forms a beacon drawing people into the Paralympic story.
