While inclusivity and diversity are always at the heart of International Day of People With Disability celebrations, this year's event is set to be more accessible than ever before. From Thursday, December 3, the week-long Creative Control Online Program is going digital, serving up a broad range of visual art, theatre, film and writing from creative people with disability. The theme of the year is 'creative control', putting people with disability at the centre of their own narrative, as well as giving them control over it.

Social justice organisation Brotherhood of St Laurence has teamed up with Arts Access Victoria, Writers Victoria, Polyglot Theatre and Back to Back Theatre for the free digital event. The program will see workshops, panel discussions, commissioned writing pieces, film and a huge online art exhibition.

The latter is set to showcase works by 46 artists with disability, pulling together a diverse collection of illustration, painting, collage and photography. The online gallery will be free to browse till 5pm on Thursday, December 10 with select pieces featuring audio descriptions for added accessibility.

Creative Control runs from 10am on Thursday, December 3 through till 5pm on Thursday, December 10. Check out the full program and register for an event here.
