SCREENING & DEBATE: DOUBLE DISCRIMINATION
With BSL Interpretation. A light lunch will be provided
Do disabled actors and filmmakers from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic groups (BAME) face twice the barriers that their peers do? What should we all be doing to acknowledge and tackle discrimination, both within the disability community and the mainstream? All are welcome to discuss this important issue on World Human Rights Day.
