In April I spoke at the Being Seen on Screen conference hosted by ACMI in partnership with the Geena Davis Institute.
Here’s me calling for better allyship in the arts, because so many fail to include disability in their diversity initiatives. Don’t forget about disabled people when you’re thinking about and talking about diversity.
Big shoutouts to my incredible co-panelists Amy Marks, Milo Harthill and Taryn Brumfitt and to the individuals and orgs I mentioned – Caroline Bowditch , Chloe Hayden, Em Rusciano, Arts Access Victoria and Melbourne Fringe (my part time job) who have created great resources to help you create access and inclusion. The whole panel discussion can be viewed on YouTube.
Send me a message if you’d like to book me to speak on topics like these (and more!) at your event or workplace.
