    Innovation Lounge
  • Duration

    1 hour 30 min

Instead of disabled people only pleading for a place at the table of society, how do we craft a more disability aware society, valuing the unique perspectives, knowledge and wisdom disabled people bring to the table? Heeding to Fr Michael Lapsley’s call “You can’t be a real community without us”, in this conversation local and international disability activists in Parliament, in religion and over the ether, share from their experience. In the process we’ll dream beyond the mere inclusion of disabled people to the new community we seek to become. The discussion will be opened with a film screening of an episode of “Life begins after coffee” by SABC Education.
