Talent for Discovery Project Video Series EOIs
We are opening a casting call for people with a disability to participate in a professional paid video series exploring and understanding the role of digital accessibility in our daily lives. These videos will aim to raise awareness and educate our community about access with the following ideas:
- What is digital accessibility?
- How does it affect people with disability?
- Why is digital access important for everyone?
We believe that individuals with a disability have unique perspectives and insights that will help make these videos engaging and informative. By joining our project, you will have the opportunity to be paid to share your story and help create content that can make a real difference in the lives of people with disability.
No previous experience is necessary! We are looking for individuals with lived experience, who are passionate about accessibility and inclusion, feel confident talking to camera, and interested to learn more about the topic. This series will be professionally produced and promoted across various channels to reach a wide and exciting audience.
If you are interested in taking part in the Discover Video Series, please fill out the online EOI form to tell us a bit about yourself and your experience with digital access by 31 May 2023.
