Meet people with disability from across Queensland, and discover their stories, achievements and contributions to their communities. We’re talking to people with disability doing innovative things and reaching for the stars in sport, business, the arts, and every aspect of life. You’ll hear from the inner city, our major regional centres, and our state’s rural areas. Join us as we celebrate Queenslanders with disability and work towards improving access and inclusion for everyone, of all abilities.
