International Day of Disabled People Marketplace event on Thursday 30 November at Leeds City Museum.

This is a great opportunity to meet and connect with people from different local groups and with different providers. There will also be interactive workshops and activities, as well as a quiet/sensory room. This year’s theme is Transformation, Innovation and Inclusion. It will be a welcoming space for reflection, connection, acceptance and challenge.

International Day of Disabled People (IDODP) is an international day that is celebrated every year on 3 December. This is the 5th year that Leeds has organised a collaborative event to mark this special day.
