Free activities to mark International Day of People with Disability

It’s just one month until the International Day of People with Disability and there’s some free fun celebrations to look forward to!

Two FREE events will be held as part of International Day of People with Disability on Friday, December 3, celebrating the creativity of people with disability.

People with Disability Australia are proud to be supporting two events run by Accessible Arts and the Inner West Council in Sydney:

December 2 & 4: 12.30pm-2.30pm – The world premiere season of four new video artworks by artists with disability at Sydney’s Museum of Contemporary Art. The Saturday screening will be followed by a Q&A with the artists. All artworks can be viewed with closed captioning, audio description or Auslan interpretation. For more information visit the Accessible Arts website.

December 17: The 5th annual Inclusive Film Festival live streamed nationally from Sydney’s historic Petersham Town Hall. This is a free and fabulous program of disability-focused screen and stage entertainment. Presented by the Inner West Council in partnership with PWDA and other local organisations, the festival is a live, COVID-safe and fully accessible event at Petersham Town Hall from 6pm to 9.30pm. It will also be live streamed for audiences around the country. For more information and to register, visit the Inner West Council website.

“People With Disability Australia (PWDA) is delighted to be supporting these two activities which showcase the talent and creativity of artists, performers, filmmakers and writers with disability,” CEO Sebastian Zagarella said.

“We hope lots of people will enjoy these fantastic events which will provide our community with access to some great disability-focused art and entertainment.”
