AN OPPORTUNITY FOR PEOPLE WITH DEAFBLINDNESS FROM A DIVERSE CULTURAL BACKGROUND

 The NDCO program is looking for participants with disability from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds to take part in a film project. There are 2 important aspects in this film project:


1. Sharing of successes and barriers in achieving education and employment goals.
2. The opportunity to learn film making and storytelling.

 This project is supported by Settlement Services International, Multicultural Disability Advocacy Association, Advance Diversity Services and Why Documentaries. The aim is to showcase the successes and inspirational stories from culturally and linguistically diverse community members, so that others within those communities can apply the same techniques to success and reduce the barriers to education and employment.

 Come along to a morning tea on Thursday 13 September from 10:30am – 12:00pm at Level 2, 462 Chapel Road, Bankstown to find out more!

the project is open to applicants from across NSW.
