International Day of People with Disabilities (IDPwD) is a United Nations sanctioned day celebrated annually across the globe. The aim of IDPwD is to raise awareness, understanding and acceptance of the 4.4 million people living with disability in Australia.
This year’s celebrations will be hosted by Wodonga Council in collaboration with AlburyCity and the Regional Disability Advocacy Service (RDAS).
To mark the day, an expo will be held on Thursday, December 7 at The Cube Wodonga.
The Expo is an opportunity for service providers and advocacy agencies to profile their services and run interactive activities.
Once the Expo concludes, attendees are welcome to make their way to the Council Chamber at 104 Hovell St for a guided virtual tour of the terrific public art that can be found throughout Wodonga.
This will be a fantastic event to connect with people and organisations in the area.
We extend our thanks to major sponsor Enhance Physio and community partner Wodonga Eyecare, without whom this event would not be possible.
Please note: The Cube Wodonga is an inclusive venue that offers a range of accessibility amenities including accessible parking, wheelchair and scooter entry, an accessible restroom with an adult changing table, a hearing loop in the lobby and, if you require a break from the action, a low-sensory room will be provided.
