Disability Pride Event Calls for Videos

Disability Pride Event Calls for Videos

What have you been doing to help you cope during lockdown? Would you like to make a video about it and show others what you’ve been up to?

Campaigning group Disabled People Against Cuts is setting up a Disability Pride event to celebrate the International Day Of People With Disabilities on 3 December.

Called ‘From Relaxation to Resistance – a Celebration of our Lives in Lockdown’ the event aims ‘to show just how remarkable we are as disabled people and how proud we are about our lives and achievements.

The statement from DPAC continues: “It is possible that your main achievement is just surviving, we know that alone can be very hard work in itself so if you want to send us something about that please do. However don’t tell us about the problems but rather how you solved them if you can.

“Tell us about things you’ve made, what you cooked, how you have supported others, where you have been, what plants you have grown, or any artistic achievements you’ve produced in any medium.

“You may be a well-known or little-known cartoonist who has captured the absurdity and callousness of government lack of action to protect disabled people, or you may be involved in a project to interview activists and archive our history. You may be a journalist who has been investigating what has been happening and creating a lasting record.

“You may have taken legal or other action to advance disabled people’s rights during the pandemic or be in the process of doing so. Whatever you’ve been doing we want to hear from you.”

DPAC – which also has a local branch – would like disabled people to send them short videos of 2-4 minutes showing what they’ve been doing over the last 6-7 months. They add that if anyone has produced a poem, song or similar that lasts a bit longer then please send that too.

You should send your work – by mid November at the latest – or any enquiries to mail@dpac.uk.net

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)
