The Lost Generation

It was great to be reminded the other day of The Lost Generation project by DADAA, and even more exciting to be pointed to them on the Disseminate website.
In 2008 I first heard about the project. The project involved films of people with disabilities in WA, Storytellers. I remember as a room full of professionals discussed a film of a man sitting in the sand running his fingers and making patterns. Some proposed that it should be called sand sculpting. Some questioned the value of showing a man “in his own world”. How should this man be presented to this world?
You can catch a brief glimsp of David in Episode 4 of the Findings documentary.
The whole project is worth a look!
