International day of people with disability

Events in NSW for International Day of People with Disability

December 3 is International Day of People with Disability. It aims to increase public awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability and celebrate their achievements and contributions.  The theme this year is ‘Empowering persons with disabilities and ensuring inclusiveness and equality’. Join in on the IDPwD events around NSW!

Looking for something closer to home? Newcastle’s Grain Silos Shine a Light each year to mark this important date.

Accessible Arts, the peak organisation for Arts and Disability in NSW, works with cultural organisation Octapod on advocacy, capacity building and removing barriers to accessing the arts in Greater Newcastle. Dr Riona Tindal, Accessible Arts Deaf Arts Coordinator, will be based at Octapod throughout 2019 to address the arts and cultural needs of people with disability in the region.

We also provide a Disability Resources LibGuide with services, support and information available for TAFE NSW students and staff.
