VIVID will shine a light on young people with a disability during National Youth Week.
On Tuesday, April 17, Vivid will be launching a new video ‘What it Means to Me’, a short piece exploring the views of six young people living with a disability.
‘‘It’s important for us as an organisation that supports people with a disability to ensure the wider community hears the voices and opinions of a diverse range of people,’’ Vivid chief executive Scott Alexander said.
‘‘We were thrilled Murray River Council were keen to financially support this idea so we could bring it to life.’’
The young people selected for the project represent a cross section of people accessing Vivid’s services.
These include day programs and residential support through Vivid Living, supported employment through Vivid Work Crew or pre-accredited courses with Vivid Learning.
‘‘All the people we support have a story to tell and we aim to give them a voice – whether it’s through projects like this video, on our social media channels, our quarterly newsletter or through programs such as our Client Representative Council which is a local advocacy group for people with a disability,’’ Mr Alexander said.
‘‘Come along to the launch to be the first to see this video clip and hear what Joel, Josh, Jack, Talya, Cole and Jordan have to say about life.
‘‘It’s going to be a great morning and we look forward to giving our guests the opportunity to see one of our Vivid Work Crew sites where the event will take place.’’
The launch will be held at 22 Francis St, Echuca on Tuesday, April 17 from 10.30am.
