- Keen to hear from peers with lived experiences of disability and celebrate their achievements?
- Ever wondered what it’s like to live every day with a disability or different type of disability?
The City of Canterbury Bankstown and members of their Universal Access Advisory Committee are inviting our community to attend our International Day of People with Disability celebration.
Lived Experiences of Peers with Disability – Human Library
Tuesday 29 November 2022
Bryan Brown Theatre
Bankstown Library and Knowledge Centre
Find out by listening to the stories told by the members of our Lived Experience of Peers with Disability Human Library.
‘Borrow’ stories from Julie Magill, who lives with a physical disability, and Abrahim Darouiche, who lives with a neuromuscular disorder, or any of our other speaking ‘books’.
We will also have a panel discussion made up of local school aged children and young people with disability sharing their stories as well as launch the CBCity Disability Abuse Prevention Collaborative’s Disability Abuse Prevention video.
Together, we can help everyone gain an understanding and acceptance of people with disability, promote empathy, compassion and empowerment.
This is a FREE event, but registration is essential as morning tea will be provided.
