The Lives We Lead is a social media project to influence the community to better understand the contributions that people with disability are making economically, socially, culturally and politically.
The project captures up to twenty video and photo stories of people with disability going about their lives achieving ordinary and extraordinary things.
A reference group of people with disability use a co-design approach to curate their stories.
“Great stories happen to those who can tell them.”
Ira Glass, author, journalist, host of This American Life

For the culmination of this project we are holding a gala ball event on Tuesday 3rd of December at Beaumonde On The Point. This will be an opportunity to get people who wouldn't typically get to meet The Lives We Lead storytellers to see and hear from them. It will be a night filled with good food and even better company. For more details and to purchase tickets click here.
