New Play: People with Disabilities Transforming Attitudes about and Experiences with Employment

 12:30 pm | The Massey Theatre

Collectively created by artists with disabilities and the team that brought you Romance, Relationships & Rights!


People with disabilities deserve to work! Follow the dramatized stories of individuals with disabilities (self-advocates) and their experiences navigating employment. Get a glimpse into the highs and lows of searching for work, interviewing for a job, the first day of a new job, dealing with conflict at work, asking an employer for help, and advocating for more responsibility, and future promotions. Focusing on what can happen on one day, we explore the intricacies of working at a Community Recreation Centre, a Pet Store, and an Office Building as self-advocates deal with the barriers, challenges, and successes that can happen in their search for meaningful work.
