Last week, our Disability Awareness Players trained a group of filmmakers at Kartemquin Films to be disability aware. In addition to the training, the Players shared their experiences with living with a disability, as well as their thoughts on disability representation in the media. It was a very engaging and fun experience for our Players. We received a lot of positive feedback as a result, including this quote from one of the audience members:
“As someone without a disability, I know it’s my responsibility to educate myself, but I really appreciate the thoughtful and candid work of the Players.”
We look forward to the next training.
