Together We Build

September 9, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - November 4, 2022 @ 4:30 pm

The Together We Build exhibition and events programme kicks off on 9th September and runs until 4th November at cultural venues across Bucks.  12 venues that have chosen to take part, will celebrate our County’s Paralympic heritage by displaying objects chosen by disabled Community Curators, and running events inspired by the Paralympic story.

Gravity Corset

This is a chance to see a selection of Paralympic objects that have not been on display before, including: the Tokyo 2020 Torch, a Paralympic Athlete’s shirt designed by Stella McCartney for 2012, the Swaypole Dress and Gravity Corset from the 2012 Paralympic Opening Ceremony, lion and futuristic mascots and Chris Holmes’ Racing Wheelchair, among others.  These items will be on display at venues across the County and via our virtual gallery.

Amersham Museum is hosting the Gravity Costume Corset from the London 2012 Paralympic Opening Ceremony. This object was chosen by Maggie. Normal museum admission fees apply.

Together We Build is made possible with The National Lottery Heritage Fund, thanks to National Lottery players.  Support has also been provided by Buckinghamshire Council.
