International Day of People with Disability - IDEAS Power Blog

To celebrate International Day of People with Disability, IDEAS has founded the IDEAS Power Blog. We want you to tell us about ‘your power’.       

Your Power Logo with Red background  


We want to hear about you taking, realising and stepping into your power.

We want to change the narrative. We will publish creative works produced by

people with a disability telling their stories in their own words. We are inviting

submissions from people with disabilities, their carers and families, and supporters.

Your story might be about a time you used your quiet strengths to solve a problem

at work, home, in a relationship, or in your community. It could be about a major

event that changed the way you see yourself.

You decide how you want to tell your story.

IDEAS values your work and we pay IDEAS POWER Blog contributors.

Each commission will be paid $500 AUD.

Submissions open from 3 December 2018.

A new blog post will be published reguarly on the IDEAS website and shared through our networks.


How to pitch an idea…

Please put the word “Pitch” in the email subject line and include the title of your work.

Please also include your social media account handles. We will promote our IDEAS

POWER Blog artists across our social media networks and in our newsletters.
