About the event
1 in 4 New Zealanders have a physical, sensory, learning, or mental health impairment. People with disabilities make meaningful contributions in our community, but many misperceptions of disability remain. The world is not designed for disabled people. We all have a role to play in identifying and removing barriers to enable everyone to have choice and control in their lives, and to achieve their goals.
So what would it take to advance a disability-inclusive Aotearoa?
Join us on Thursday 26th January at Circa Theatre for a kōrero on perceptions about disability, the power of language, intersectionality, and the importance of representation, with a particular focus on the arts. Hosted by the Social Change Collective and Everybody Cool Lives Here, our panel of experts will speak to their own lived experiences and ways forward.
