People with disability learning the ability of film and media production
Written on the 2 August 2016here at Community Living Australia we support people with disability to live life to the full. For a group of eight clients in our Riverland accommodation service 'living life to the full' entails learning about film and media production!
Recently we supported eight clients to attend a four day Film Making Workshop in Renmark run by Tutti Arts, an SA based organisation that works with and supports artists with disability.The four-day workshop is the first in a series of regional workshops being run around the state in the lead-up to this year's 'Sit Down, Shut Up and Watch Film and New Media Festival' being held at the Angaston Town Hall on Friday, October 21.
The South Australian festival features the work of people with learning disabilities from all over the world and when it commenced in 2014 was the first of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere.
'The workshop has been a wonderful opportunity for our clients to express their creative abilities in such a fun and collaborative environment and to really showcase their talents and skills,' said Jessica Linsell, the Community Living Australia Riverland Regional Coordinator.'We focus strongly on working and partnering with other organisations to give great opportunities to our clients and people with disability generally. We have a strong commitment to our local community to support people with disability to reach their personal goals and be recognised as valued members of their community,' said Mark Kulinski, Chief Executive of Community Living Australia.
'It is only through collaboration with other organisations such as Tutti Arts that we can achieve our aim. We are thrilled to have been involved in making the workshop happen and are thankful to the Tutti film crew for reaching out to include those in regional areas. On behalf of our clients, we sincerely thank them for the great workshop,' added Mr Kulinski.
