Artist Caroline Cardus has put together this exhibition of road signs on a disability theme. This sign was created by a campaigner who used to chain herself to buses.
Cardus wanted a collaborative project because "I don't know what it's like to experience impairments I don't have". This one reminds people that some disabilities are not obvious.
It was the disapproval of midwives that prompted a disabled woman to depict the statue of Alison Lapper on a blue circle - an encouragement to disabled women to have children of their own.
Cardus started her art degree with good mobility but finished it as a wheelchair user. "Over time people treated me differently as an artist and as a person."
For many disabled people, being the recipients of charity is humiliating. They would prefer to have jobs so they can provide for themselves.
A blue circular road sign means a positive instruction. This one is a reminder of the importance of the emotional side of life for disabled people.
Disabled people often complain that others talk down to them. Road signs with a red circular border means something is prohibited and the instruction speaks for itself.
This sign uses gentle humour to remind people that sign language is a normal part of life for many.
Campaigners assert that steps and other obstacles turn impairments into disabilities. Recent legislation means that most buildings should eventually have step-free access.
This sign was created by Caroline Cardus herself. The Way Ahead, is at Holton Lee in Dorset until 16 February and is expected to tour the rest of the UK during 2005.
