Disability events

Glen Eira runs a range of events for people with disabilities throughout the year. Whether you're a film buff or sports fan, a carer or a speaker, we have something for you.

International Day for people with a Disability

International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) is held on 3 December each year.

This year's theme is Transformative solutions for inclusive development: the role of innovation in fuelling an accessible and equitable world’.

The annual theme provides an overarching focus on how society can strive for inclusivity through the removal of physical, technological and attitudinal barriers for people with disability. 

Defiant Lives — Classic Cinema showing

We are celebrating International Day for People with a Disability with a screening of the film Defiant Lives.

Defiant Lives introduces the most impressive activists you’ve never heard of and tells the story of the rise and fight of the disability rights movement in the United States, Britain and Australia. The film features exclusive interviews with elders who lead the movement over the past five decades, and combines this with never before seen archival footage.

Defiant Lives is a triumphant film full of extraordinary characters who put their lives on the line to create a better and very different world where everyone regardless of impairment is valued and can participate.

After the movie there will be an opportunity to talk to Director Sarah Barton in a Q&A session.

This movie is PG (some mild language). Film length is 90 minutes.
