  • City Campus Library

In honour of Diversity Week, UTS Library in partnership with UTS Accessibility Service presents Defiant Lives.

Synopsis: Documenting the rise and fight of the disability rights movement both in Australia and in the UK and USA this film looks at how activists around the world helped to free their people from incarceration in institutions and came to a new understanding of disability by reframing it as a problem of society rather than a problem existing within individuals.  The film is filled with rare archival imagery and teases out a nuanced little known story about how disabled people have literally changed the world we live in.

Popcorn and lollies will be provided.
All welcome

 

Please be advised that photography and filming will take place at this event.
