Come along to the launch of the Geoffrey Bell Collection, which documents the social and political history of the disability rights movement in Australia through the papers of Geoffrey Bell (1944-2008).

Mr Bell, who lived with a high-level spinal cord injury for 43 years, was an important figure in the development of the movement, which advocated for self-determination, independence, and equality for people with disabilities.

The Geoffrey Bell Collection is a useful resource for researchers interested in the history of the disability rights movement in Australia and may prove a useful aid for future debates and discussions on disability rights issues. We hope that you can join us for the launch of this important collection.
