Disabled People Against Cuts (DPAC) leads a Power Tour to raise awareness of the disproportionate and adverse impacts of so-called "welfare reform" measures on disabled people since 2010, and how disabled people have been fighting back

About

DPAC is a disabled people led campaign founded in 2010 to oppose the brutal and disproportionate impacts of austerity on disabled people. We follow the social model of disability and were set up to work with the wider anti-austerity movement and trade unions. DPAC uses a range of campaign tools including research, lobbying, and legal challenges but we are probably best known for our direct actions and protests and for triggering the United Nations’ investigation which found the UK government guilty of grave and systematic violations of disabled people’s rights due to welfare reform. 

The tour will last approximately 1.5 hours, with time for refreshments and discussion afterwards at Westminster Cafe Basement. 

POWER WALKS PROGRAMME 

Influenced by the Situationists' dérive, the Power Walks programme brings to life the Actual RealityOS data, highlighting issues around social housing, low wage work, histories of resistance and the accessibility of the city. The three walks and a tour have been created in conversation with campaigns, community groups, and organisations local to the areas surrounding the Serpentine, and will take place throughout the duration of Hito Steyerl's Power Plants exhibition. Each walk and tour tell a story of the hidden and not so hidden inequalities from the point of view of those most affected.
