Event description

Description

2017 Southern Cross University Community Seminar Series:

Navigating the Social Dimensions of the 2018 Commonwealth Games

The Commonwealth Games is coming to the Gold Coast in April 2018. This year our community seminar series explores the implications of the Games for social and emotional wellbeing, particularly in terms of community services responses. The seminars will be an opportunity to share knowledge about past experiences of hosting major sporting events. The aim is to assist local community services plan for issues that may arise and explore opportunities the Games may bring in promoting health and wellbeing. We are particularly interested in the implications of the Games for people in need and how the Games may contribute to building community resilience.

Seminar 3: Representations of Ability and Disability in Sport

The third seminar will examine debates about representations of the body in sport. We will look at how people can be inspired through sport, and explore the implications for people with disability and the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). The seminar will consider rights-based and consumer-led responses.
