Using digital storytelling to connect people with intellectual disability.
The stARTSPEAK project is an innovative digital inclusion initiative led by people with disability. The project builds community narratives using digital technology and develops processes and outcomes that create new – and enhance existing – inclusion opportunities. Launched in 2012, the work from this project will be documented over a three-year period to formulate a digital storytelling model that is transferable across a range of community settings. It will include the development of a smart device application that enables users to create different forms of artistic work.
The project is a collaboration between DADAA, the Disability Services Commission, the Independent Living Centre and Inkubator. These organisations will also work in partnership with the Department for Communities, the Department for Training and Workforce Development, and several local governments across metropolitan Perth.
