Our office is supporting ‘Intertwined‘ a three day festival spilling onto the Geelong waterfront celebrating diversity, creativity, inclusion and resilience. There’ll be art, music, and meditations all led by people with disability – some of the most creative people we know.
The festival, initiated by Melissa Murphy of the University of Melbourne, has been chosen to go to voting as part of #PickmyProject. We’re proud to be Project Partner.
We need you to vote. The festival will only go ahead if it gets enough votes.
‘Intertwined’ will flow from Having a Say, the largest conference for people with disability in Australia. It will bring people together, celebrate our shared humanity, allow us all to get creative and have a ball!
If you’re wondering why we’ve partnered to support this festival, the answer is: we believe that a key barrier preventing the full participation of people with disability is attitudes.
Changing attitudes requires conversation, communication and cooperation. This festival allows people to do just that! People will come together, chat, do some serious art making and listen to each other. It’ll be great.
An interactive festival, everyone in Geelong (visitors and residents alike) will be able to have fun, be curious, challenge stereotypes, and show how interwoven and connected we all are.
Some of the best creative minds of Geelong and Victoria have joined us in supporting this project! Art Gusto, the Slow Art Collective, Socially Inclusive Musicians Mentoring Alliance, Wool Museum Geelong, Fog Theatre, Arts Access Victoria and more.
Bust a move with the InKrewsive hip hop crew from Wild at Heart, enjoy live performances from musicians and dancers, and get your creative juices flowing at an art workshop.
This festival is an experiential way to have a conversation about what true inclusion is and can be.
To help support and celebrate disability pride, please vote! You need to be aged over 16 years, and a Victorian resident. Voting closes on 17 September 2018 so now’s the time to act.
Remember, you have until 17 September 2018 to vote.
We’d be grateful if you shared this project with your friends, family and colleagues. Every vote helps.
