Ability and Disability

Digital Storytelling Collection- Ability and Disability




A collection of user generated stories about people with disabilities, told through the use of multimedia tools. Contributors have combined material from their own personal archives of audio visual material (photographs, video footage, text, music and sound) to produce a 3-4 minute personal story which they have then narrated. This collection contains approximately 50 titles and dates from 2001.

There is a high chance that you know one or more people with a disability but do not realise they have it. Not all disabilities are visible. People with disabilities are often stereotyped or identified by what they cannot do, not what they can do.
