Open Doors Open Minds Survey for People with a Disability or Carers of People with a Disability

This survey is for People with a Disability, or Carers of People with a Disability. If you are a staff, member, or volunteer for a community group or organisation please fill out the survey specifically designed for you here.

 

OUR PROJECT: 

Rebus is a company comprised of people with and without disabilities that uses theatre to address social issues. Open Doors Open Minds is a community education project designed to assist community organisations to become more accessible and inclusive to people with all kinds of disability,including mental ill-health. 

Rebus Theatre will develop an interactive theatre performance about where things can go wrong when people with disabilities want to join, participate in or use the services of community organisations. This show will then be performed in different venues around Canberra as a way of holding a dialogue about how community organisations and people with disabilities can work together to improve access and inclusion.

By ‘community organisations’ we mean everything from completely informal groups like book clubs, through to sporting organisations, arts and cultural organisations, faith groups, and large funded organisations like Belconnen Community Service or Communities@Work. 

 

To do this we need to hear real life stories from people with disabilities or their carers about times that you have tried to join, participate in or use the services of community organisations. We want to hear of any barriers you faced such as:

·      Physical barriers - like steps, accessibility

·      Attitudes of staff,volunteers or members of an organisation

·      Processes such as ways of contacting an organisation

·      Timetabling.

We are also interested in hearing stories of times when community organisations got things really right for you.

 

These stories will be read by the staff and actors of Rebus Theatre and will be used for inspiration in the development of the performance, however no identifying details will be used in performance, the text you provide will never be made public in any way, and will be treated as confidential. Some people who provide stories will also be asked to participate in a one-day workshop to further assist the company in developing the performance. Each workshop participant (or their organisation) will receive $100.

There will then be 10 performances of this interactive theatre piece in different locations across Canberra in which audiences comprised of people with Disabilities, and staff, volunteers or members of community groups or organisations can work together to find solutions to these barriers.

 

NB: We are only seeking stories from People with Disabilities in Australia accessing services in Australia. 

 

If you have questions at any time about the survey or the procedures, you may contact Robin Davidson at 0403 815 784 or by email at robin@rebustheatre.com.

This project is funded by the Australian Federal Government National Disability Insurance Agency's Information, Linkages and Capacity Building program.
