#ASID 2019 Conference – Season 3, Episode 1

Our first episode of Season 3 is a jam packed episode taking you into the #ASID 2019 conference.

In this episode we explore the key themes that arose in our interviews with keynotes speakers and delegates: being heard, being connected, being healthy and safe, and taking action! We had help from South Australian local producers Gavin Burner, Catarina Morgan, Alison Vivian and April Dwyer from Purple Orange to catch as many people as we could. We get a more indepth taste of all the keynote addresses. Firstly the keynote from the South Australian self-advocates from Our Voice SA and South Australian Council for Intellectual Disability: Ian Cummins, Tiffany Littler, Rebeka Touzea, Gavin Burner, Chris Bergin, Sarah Bryne & Elizabeth Crawford. We also hear from international keynote speakers Professor Jennifer CleggDr Stacy Clifford Simplican and Dr Nick Gore. We also hear from Australian advocates Scott Avery of the First Peoples Disability Network; and Shu Hua Chan and Jim Simpson from NSWCouncil for Intellectual Disability.

This podcast was recorded on the unceded lands of the aboriginal peoples of Australia. We pay our respect to their elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
