At a partner event promoting media talent from the Disability community, a young man expressed disappointment that he would never be given the chance to act, even though he thought he might have been good at it, because of his disability and the way the world actually was.
Well, we didn't agree. Strongly. We wrote a script
(in 10 mins.) and sent it to him, and he agreed
to act in it. When we told the group, 13 other people volunteered, so we wrote 5 more scenes.
(BTW, he was right about acting – he IS good at it.)
The joy and validation of creating art is a human right. This initiative creates films and audio plays from the enthusiasm, humor, and determination of individuals that "the world" may not be wise enough to engage.
