International Day of People with Disability is held on the 3rd of December each year. The day challenges how you think about disability and helps grow a more inclusive Australia. It helps promote the rights and well-being of persons with disabilities at every level of society and development.
To celebrate, many communities across South Australia are hosting events in person and online for the public and people living with disabilities. Here’s a list of some events you may be interested in!
ONE FOR THE THEATRE LOVERS
AMPLIFY is an original production performed by No Strings Attached Theatre of Disability. Thirty-nine disabled actors will come together to perform and reconnect South Australians through the actor’s thoughts, ideas, and creativity.
Performances only from the 1st to the 3rd of December at the State Opera Rehearsal Studio on Marion Road.
