What is disability and what does it mean to me, my family, my mob?

Are there supports out there and how do I use them?

Across a showcase of five short films, My Everyday Life explores the stories of Aboriginal community members with disability who are receiving support from the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

The films delve into the everyday lives of Leanne, Jane, Greg, Kane, Janine and Noah, who share how their supports are helping them to connect with family, friends, community and culture in a way that is meaningful to them.

Stories are told across the following films:

  • At Home
  • Going to the Shops
  • Culture
  • Going to the Footy
  • Celebration

My Everyday Life was made in Melbourne, for the community, by the community.
