Inclusion Ireland are delighted that Paul Alford is to speak at the 12th International Disability Law Summer School, which will take place online via Zoom from 31 May – 2 July 2021.
In its first-ever online incarnation, the summer school will take place over 5 weeks, from 31 May to 2 July. The programme has been designed to allow participants to dip in and out of the material based on their availability throughout these weeks, and contains a mixture of specially pre-recorded content, live panel discussions with opportunities for Q&A and interactive events (including comedy sets, a storytelling event, and a DJ’d dance party). Participants will receive an email each Monday with pre-recorded videos, live panel discussions will take place each Wednesday from 2-4pm Irish time, and the interactive and group activities will take place on Thursdays and Fridays (each lasting no more than 2 hours).
Each week will address a different theme, including Article 30 of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, voices of disabled people in media, disabled people as artists and creators, sport, leisure & play, and access to the arts.
Paul will speak in week two of the event, which focuses on the Stories and Representations of Disabled People.
