WATCH: I am not a work of art

WATCH: I am not a work of art

Emily Dash is a writer, actor and speaker based in Sydney and her latest short film I am not a work of art has been included in Metro Screen’s #Screenability program for International Day of People with a Disability.

“In ‘I Am Not A Work Of Art’, I really wanted to explore discrimination, but not in terms of narrating specific instances. It was more like… how does it feel to be made into an object of discrimination? For me, it was about getting people to listen to the full story rather than make assumptions.” Says Emily of her work.

In 2011, Emily  received an At Home Care Grant to fund an automatic door and manual wheelchair, granting her more independence in her everyday life.
