Strengthening Disability Advocacy Conference 2018: Doing disability differently
Date: 14 September 2018
time: 9:00am – 4:00pm (may change closer to date)
Venue: NAB The Hall, 700 Burke Street, Docklands, Victoria, Australia
Although many specialist disability services are funded through the NDIS, the NDIS approach is to maximise participants’ access to mainstream programs. How do community organisations learn how to be more inclusive? And what are the barriers preventing full participation of people with disability? Basically, the answer is attitudes. Changing attitudes is difficult. It requires consistent and targeted campaigns. This conference is a platform to let our politicians know about what needs to change for people with disability. It’s time to celebrate diversity and showcase a range of perspectives while keeping a keen focus on what needs to change.
Doing Disability Differently will feature a keynote address, debate, plenary and panel sessions that investigate how the power and diversity of disability identity and pride might be harnessed to affect real change to promote flexibility, respect and humanity for people with disability in the community.
I will be participating in the Empowering Lives: A platform demanding change for Victorians with disability session and will be discussing all things inclusive education.
I aim to be there for the entire day so if you would like to meet me and have a chat feel free to come find me or organise a meeting via messaging me via email or social media.
