What. A. Night! ✨

Last Thursday 4 April 2024, we celebrated the launch of our new Peer Mentoring program – a program all about connecting people with disability with those with lived experience, to increase their social connections and community relationships.

We had such a fun night with plenty of games, food, drinks, and most importantly, we had the opportunity to connect and form strong bonds with those in our community 🤗

A massive thank you to everyone who joined us to celebrate our launch, as well as Hard Days Night ADL for the awesome venue, Peter from 7 Fold Media for capturing the night, and to our fabulous organisers and Board that made this night happen.

It means the world to us and we’re so excited for what’s to come!

Highlights from the night include;

Navigating Adelaide With Disabilities Amid Well-Intentioned Interventions

Explore how Adelaide’s well-meaning accessibility interventions impact individuals with disabilities. Join us as we navigate urban living, discuss technology’s role, and uncover the community’s part in fostering inclusion. A must-listen episode shedding light on the realities of navigating city life with disabilities in Adelaide.

In this important episode, we delve into the complexities of living with disabilities in Adelaide, set against the backdrop of the city’s ongoing efforts towards inclusivity. Our guests, including David Olney, Jorja Denton, and insights from Clair Crowley of the Strong & Capable Co-operative, share their lived experiences navigating well-intended urban interventions that sometimes present mixed outcomes for individuals with different disabilities. As Adelaide seeks public feedback on its new Disability Access and Inclusion Plan, this conversation aims to contribute unique perspectives to the dialogue, exploring the interplay of technology, community support, and the broader societal understanding of disability.

And in the Musical Pilgrimage, we feature the the song “Fabulous” by Rachael Leahcar, written and produced exclusively for the No Strings Attached Theatre Of Disability.
