These scenes are based on true stories and are intended to raise awareness and challenge disability discrimination. People who experience disability want to be treated with respect, empathy and dignity. During the covid pandemic in 2021, Emerge Community Arts met weekly on-line to devise the scenes you are about to hear from these powerful stories.’ A series of scenarios reacting to the discrimination people living with a disability can experience. The audio play also highlights peoples ability to overcome barriers and achieve their life goals.
