The Other Film Festival - Leadership through a different lens

NOTE: This session replaces the Respect, portrayal and inclusion Industry Workshop session.
An authentic conversation exploring pathways to leadership for disabled and non-disabled leaders
Padraig Naughton, Executive Director of Arts and Disability Ireland, will facilitate an honest and thought-provoking conversation between Veronica Pardo, Executive Director of Arts Access Victoria and Emma Bennison, CEO of Arts Access Australia, exploring the many faces of leadership in the arts and cultural sector. They will consider questions such as what makes a good leader and whether disability leadership is always best in arts and disability organisations.
This session will include a screening of the documentary “Leadership through a different lens”, directed by Emma Bennison, the co-CEO of Arts Access Australia.
In 2014, Emma Bennison travelled to the UK to find out why there are more leaders with disability in the UK and what we can learn from the UK to bring back to Australia.
Throughout Emma's trip, she met many people working in the field of arts and disability. As part of her trip, Emma filmed many of her interviews with the people she met.
