This year

Welcome to International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD)!

This year, we will promote and acknowledge the achievements and contributions of people with disability through online stories and videos which will be shared on the IDPwD website and social media channels.

For IDPwD 2020, we have partnered with the ABC to feature the creative work of emerging content makers with disability. The partnership provides a unique national platform to increase public awareness, understanding and recognition of the contributions of people with disability within our community. Programs will run across ABC Radio, TV, online and on demand. We are very excited to continue the conversation about disability across the year and into 2021 with the help of the ABC.

We also want to encourage you to share our messages of inclusion and diversity and your own messages of ‘seeing the ability in disability’ through your online and social media channels – #DisableStereotypes.

If you are keen to host or attend an event for IDPwD, we recommend you do so while aligning with relevant state/territory restrictions. Alternatively, we would suggest you consider celebrating the 4.4 million Australians living with disability through a digital or online activity.
