We would also like to take this opportunity to announce our theme:
Same Not Different: Educate. Inspire. Transform
This theme was the collaborative brainchild of our human rights advisors, who hope to transform perceptions and attitudes towards disability.
At each event, we will have keynote speakers and guest speakers who will help to educate, inspire and transform us.
The keynote speakers are:
Netflix star, Chloé Hayden is an award-winning motivational speaker, actor, performer, author and disability rights activist and advocate. The heart of which these all intersect being her passion for creating change, celebrating diversity, and pushing towards a better future. Diagnosed as autistic (and ADHD) at the age of thirteen, Chloe is now starring as one of the world’s first autistic characters, Quinni in Netflix’s Heartbreak High. With her messages of ‘Different, Not Less’ and ‘Find Your Eye Sparkle’, Chloé is fighting for a better future for those whose voices have been silenced for too long.
Tim Sharp is an international artist who is best known for his creation Laser Beak Man. Laser Beak Man is a character through which Tim expresses his great sense of humour, intelligence, and his original way of looking at life. Tim is the first person with Autism to have his artwork turned into an animated series and stage show. Judy and Tim speak together and share their incredible story of adversity, persistence, resilience, triumph, success, and inspiration.
Ben Pettingill sees life in a different way to most. At age 16, Ben lost 98% of his eyesight overnight to a rare genetic syndrome, Lebers Hereditary Optic Neuropathy. This sudden traumatic event turned his world upside down, redefined everything he knew and crushed all his childhood dreams in an instant. Ben went on to university to study business. It was during his studies that Ben realised his passion is to inspire everyone to see the world with a whole new view. This is what Ben calls True and Limitless Vision.
We can’t wait to see you there!
