Out of Sight, not Out of Mind

CASBA (Citizen Advocacy South Birmingham Area) were set up in 1988 to help people leaving Monyhull Hospital deal with the transition from institutional to community life and make sure their wishes were heard. To mark their 30th anniversary and the 20th anniversary of the closure of the hospital, they launched a Heritage Lottery funded project to record oral histories of people who lived and worked at the hospital, as well as people with experience of growing up in the community with a Learning Disability.

Project Coordinator Joe Peacock has spent the last year recording these stories and documenting the 90-year history of the hospital. The Library of Birmingham’s Archives & Collections department has supported the project, and the material gathered, including oral history recordings and photographs will soon be added to the collections and made available at the Library of Birmingham.

Joe will reveal all about the hidden lives of people with Learning Disabilities, who were often derided and misunderstood by the local community while living in this closed community in Kings Norton for 90 years. In his talk, he will tell some of the amazing stories of what happened behind the walls of this institution and how the people moved from living there to living alongside the rest of the community.
