Author / Presenters: 
Carly Findlay OAM, Sam Drummond, C.B. Mako and Olivia Muscat

Growing Up Disabled in Australia is a rich collection of writing from those negotiating disability in their lives, whose voices are not heard often enough. Disability presents itself in many ways, and one in five Australians has a disability, yet disabled people are still underrepresented in the media and in literature. In Growing Up Disabled in Australia – compiled by writer and appearance activist Carly Findlay OAM – more than 40 writers with a disability or chronic illness share their stories, in their own words. Contributors Sam Drummond, C.B. Mako and Olivia Muscat will speak with Carly Findlay about their stories.

This session will feature AUSLAN interpreters.

This event will take place online but registrations are required.
