M21

The film M21 – The Medieval tothe 21st Century documents the live art event which took place in Much Wenlock, Shropshire in May 2012. This project documents how disabled artists explore what it means to be alive in the 21st century.

Much Wenlock is a stunning medieval ‘black and white’ English town. ‘We are a bit offthe beaten track, but seriously worth a visit’: this is how the townis described to visitors on its website, but what is the hidden history and life of this place?

M21 explores the paradox of the‘pretty pretty’ face of limestone cottages, the living history and the reality of rural living through adisability aesthetic.
