To create a more inclusive All Abilities Queensland, we needed to change the community’s indifferent attitude towards people with a disability. So, to prove how talented, important and valuable these Queenslanders are, we gave the microphone those who know first-hand. In collaboration with inclusive theatre company Indelability Arts, we created a series of online videos exploring the challenges affecting Queenslanders with disabilities.

The RESPECT video featured real-life experiences of Queenslanders with disabilities and heard about their hopes for ‘Communities for all’. RESPECT was produced in a slam-poet style with choreographed projections. Exceeding expectations, it quashed misconceptions and encouraged Queenslanders to engage with disability in a new way.

One of three videos, it was launched by the minister for the Department of Disability Services at Queensland Parliament House. It has been viewed 110,000+ times on Facebook and has helped attract 30,000+ visitors to the well curated campaign website.
