Eight places, 800 years in the lives of deaf and disabled people


Accentuate challenges perceptions of disability by providing life changing opportunities for deaf and disabled people to participate and lead within the cultural sector. We developed Accentuate’s main website in 2010, and in 2015 we produced a digital media plan and sustainability report for Accentuate’s History of Place project which formed part of a successful HLF stage 2 funding application. Following this, we were pleased to be commissioned to develop the project website.

History of Place explores the stories and histories of places with 800 years of relevance in the lives of deaf and disabled people. It includes timelines, blogs, and multimedia including oral histories, games and interactives.
