Authentic representation has rapidly become an important cultural concern, including the representation of people with disability. This makes it a key issue for people working in cultural and creative industries, especially film, TV and advertising.
Join us for this FREE breakfast seminar to consider how having people with disability on screen and behind the scenes can help improve how audiences and consumers engage with programming and content. A light breakfast will be supplied.
