About this event

NOTE: This is an add-on ticket intended for Conference Passholders. Only registrations by Conference Passholders will be considered valid. If you have not purchased your base Conference Pass, please do so here.

Participants will learn about the social model of disability. The social model of disability is a different way of viewing the world, developed by disabled people. The social model’s message is simple. People are disabled by barriers in society, not by their impairment or difference.

The social model helps us recognise barriers that make life challenging for the disabled. By committing to remove these barriers, we as a caring and compassionate society can create equal opportunity, independence and autonomy for the disabled and marginalized.

Participants will go from Disability Aware to Disability Confident via fun-filled engagement with disabled artists, artwork, quizzes and drama-based activities.
