The first-ever step-free accessible art trail is coming to London this summer, and it’s all thanks to Evenbreak, a disability-focused job board, and Whizz-Kidz, a charity that provides mobility equipment to young people with disabilities.
Morph’s Epic Art Adventure will feature over 60 larger-than-life sculptures of Morph, the beloved children’s TV character. The trail is designed to be inclusive and accessible to everyone, regardless of physical ability.
The sculptures will be scattered throughout central London, alongside iconic landmarks, forming a great public art trail that is free to experience.
Speaking about Evenbreak’s commitment to creating a more inclusive society, CEO Jane Hatton said: “We are very proud to be sponsoring the first accessible art trail. Accessibility is key to our work at Evenbreak, and I know the whole team is looking forward to experiencing the trail this summer. This is a great opportunity for brands to demonstrate their commitment to inclusion.”
The choice of Morph as the central character for the trail is inspiring. Morph is a small clay figure that lives on an artist’s desk, which restricts his freedom and mobility. Many young wheelchair users face similar limitations in their daily lives, which can be physically and emotionally challenging. The Morph art trail is designed to highlight these issues and encourage people to envision a more inclusive world for young people with disabilities.
Whizz-Kidz, the charity partnering with Evenbreak for this project, will use the accessible art trail to raise awareness about the challenges faced by young wheelchair users and campaign for a more inclusive society.
The charity provides wheelchairs, equipment, and support to young people with disabilities, helping them to live more inclusive lives. The funds raised from the auction of the Morph sculptures at the end of the trail will go towards supporting Whizz-Kidz’s vital work.
Demonstrating an inclusive world
As part of Morph’s Epic Art Adventure in London, Whizz-Kidz will use the art trail to encourage the public, business community and young people to envision what a more inclusive world might look like for young wheelchair users and what role they might wish to play in making this a reality. Let’s enable everyone to have epic adventures in London.
What happens after the trail?
At the end of the trail, the Morphs will be auctioned off to raise significant funds for Whizz-Kidz to support young people by providing the wheelchairs, equipment, support and confidence-building experiences they need and campaigning for a more inclusive society.
