Description

UTS Shopfront invites you to Access Leads to Inclusion: Disability at UTS, an exhibition showcasing the lived experiences of students and staff members with disability at UTS.

The exhibition is launched by Disability Discrimination Commissioner, Mr Alastair McEwin, and hosted by Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education and Students), Professor Shirley Alexander.
5 December, 5.30pm to 7.30pm
UTS Tower Foyer
All are welcome.

Through a selection of text and photographs, curator Naomi Malone sheds light on the voices and experiences of people with disability, raising awareness and knowledge about inclusion and access at the university. By exploring diverse abilities, the exhibition aims to remove barriers and stigma associated with accessibility needs and create greater pride in disability.

People with disability exist everywhere. In fact, 1 in 5 Australians have a disability. Access requirements experienced by people with disability need to be met to ensure their inclusion and participation in the community,” says curator Naomi Malone. “After all, where there is access, there is inclusion.”

The event, funded through UTS’s Equity and Diversity Unit, will serve to commemorate 25 years of the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (Cth) and mark the International Day of People with a Disability.

Audio descriptions, Auslan interpretation and captioning will be provided. Please contact equity@uts.edu.au for accessible parking. Visit the UTS Access Map (click the "Access and amenities" tab) for a full list of access and amenities on campus.
