Videos We Like

A varied collection of videos ranging from persons with disabilities in humanitarian crises to sports and fashion – challenging the way we think of persons with disabilities.

The first set of videos focuses broadly on inclusion in a structural sense, whether it is in cities or in humanitarian crises. The second one includes talks from three persons with disabilities, demanding to be valued on their own terms – not in light of what is “normal”. Finally, a couple of videos inviting you to learn about or play sports for persons with disabilities.
