Episode three takes you to the Gold Coast in Queensland for an access all areas taster of the #ASID 2018 conference.
In this episode, we hear from all the keynotes including Queensland self-advocates Paul O’Dea, Donna Best and Alex Baker; international keynote speakers Professor Andrew Jahoda, Professor Chris Hatton, Associate Professor Ann Fudge Schormans and Dr Brigit Mirfin-Veitch; and Australian academics Professor Monica Cuskelly and Dr Kathy Ellem.
We also did lots of running around getting vox pops on highlights from the wider program from delegates, including self-advocates.
We also have an exciting bonus episode due in early 2019 where you will hear the outcome of the popular conference Storytelling Booth. There will be heaps of stories from self-advocates who attended. Don’t miss it!
This episode was produced by Ben Pawson, Buffy Gorrilla, Sophia Tipping & Associate Professor Hilary Johnson with thanks to the Living with Disability Research Centre.
Thank you to the all key notes who kindly gave up their time for the podcast, thank you to all the delegates, self-advocates and exhibitors who also shared their thoughts – especially ASID president Laura Hogan, Alison Maclean, Jim Simpson, Jack Kelly, Sonya Hume, Namira Williams, Rae West, Susan Holrian, Brent Hayward, Susan Harbottle, Sally Robinson along with many other vox poppers who we didn’t have time to include!
