Recorded Talks: Mainstreaming Disability and Appearance Diversity on Screen
Did you know that twenty percent of Australians live with disability? You probably wouldn't guess that from our media.
But things are gradually improving. In 2018, more people with disability and appearance diversity are writing and starring in TV and film, influencing on social media and getting opportunities as brand ambassadors. Young people today have a much greater chance of seeing themselves represented, knowing what's possible.
We talk with a representation of people with disability on screens and behind the scenes, about why it's vital to give them a place at the table.
