On July 23rd, Dublin CIL launches its online
#IndependentVoices campaign where disabled people talk about what Independent Living (IL) means to them, creating awareness so that other disabled people are empowered to access supports needed to live independently.
Event organiser and Cork CIL Community Employment Supervisor Nicola Meacle was MC for the evening. She screened four short films on the theme of “A Visual Exploration of Disability and Independent Living” and gave a brief introduction to each one. Nicola prefaced I’m Not Your Inspiration, Thank You Very Much (a talk given by Stella Young at TEDxSydney in April, 2014) by breaking the sad news that Stella had recently passed away.
