How creative video and innovative theatre helped remind Queenslanders that Everybody has a role to play.

Challenge

One in five Queenslanders has a disability, and may face barriers to participating fully in work and community life. Creating a more inclusive Queensland is the job of every Queenslander.

So, as communication specialists, our job was to change community perceptions and behaviours towards people with a disability and to celebrate the contributions they make.

Recognising we were not experts in disability, we collaborated with an inclusive theatre group – Indelibility Arts – to co-produce and film three theatre performances.

Idea

These performances, part of a social marketing campaign and supporting website, highlighted the challenges facing Queenslanders living with a disability.

They demonstrated in a creative and entertaining way, just how valuable Queenslanders with disability are to the cultural, artistic and recreational activities of our community.
