The Live Work and Play: NSW the State of Inclusion conference

This unique two-day event brought together over 600 people with disability, disability inclusion policy leaders, practitioners and community stakeholders and all levels of government to experience the 70 local and international presenters, and 30 tradeshow exhibitors and to showcase the progress NSW has made in implementing the NSW Disability Inclusion Plan.
The program included keynote and plenary sessions focusing on the conference themes of employment, accessible tourism, building liveable communities accessible technology. There were focused workshops targeting disability inclusion across multicultural settings, across the NSW public sector and in the Arts
“the best part of the conference has been the connections I have made with people I probably would not have met otherwise” – LWP 2017 Delegate
