I had a little chat with Dylan Alcott about representation for ANZ Australia’s Bluenofes.
“If you’re not seeing us, you’re not looking hard enough.” – I said.
Media and brand representation is something I feel strongly about – I really want to see more disabled people feature, so wider society isn’t so surprised to see us on TV or in a catalogue.
Dylan and I have chatted on social media a lot this past year, and fangirled each other in the ABC foyer. So I was chuffed that we’ve formed an IRL friendship too. He’s delightful!
If you’re interested in this topic, I’ll be talking more about it at ACMI with Kate Hood, Michelle Law and Alistair Baldwin on 12 June. Get your tickets here.
