Bus Stop Films and Taste Creative have launched The Inclusive Filmmaking Toolkit

Decades of experience and campaigning has gone into learning just how the arts community can create important (and unique) work with people with disabilities.

In the ferment around diversity, a lot of the heavy lifting is done by the disability sector. Companies and peak organisations across the arts are driven by a patient rage about injustice, their knowledge that the processes are so empowering, and the simple fact that people with disabilities can make important art. 

It is a lot harder to deal with issues around the alleged weaknesses of people with disability in sectors that rely on working fast to conventional frameworks. It is really easy to play the saint, to patronise and steal glory.
