The 2012 issue of Made You Look, the official magazine of the Don't DIS myAbility campaign is now available in print, or to download as a .pdf, hereAmong this year's excellent articles on a range of topics relevant for people with disability is one about how Ivana Skvorc's job at a cinema is 'just the ticket', and our friends at Bus Stop films write about the importance of inclusive film-making.

International Day of People with Disability (IDPWD) is celebrated annually in NSW with the Don’t DIS my ABILITY campaign. The campaign celebrates the diversity and ability of people with a disability. It is about promoting positive perceptions and building an environment that encourages active participation in careers, leisure pursuits as well as social activities.
