Celebrating a day of inclusion

The City of Albany is encouraging the Spencer Park community to join in the Inclusive Community Celebration to acknowledge International Day of People with Disability on Tuesday, December 3 from 3:30pm-7pm at the Spencer Park Shopping Centre.

The Inclusive Community Celebration is a free family event with craft markets, food stalls, a bouncy castle and live entertainment, giving people with disability the opportunity to participate as market stallholders and entertainers.

A highlight of the afternoon will be when some of the star performers from ‘Let’s Shine Brightly’ take the stage and showcase the incredible talent that exists in Albany.

City of Albany Executive Director Community Services Susan Kay said that the International Day of People with Disability is an important time to celebrate and acknowledge people in our community living with disability.

“One in five Australians are estimated to have a disability which is about 4.3 million people,” she said.
“The Spencer Park Inclusive Community Celebration is an opportunity to recognise and increase public awareness about the fantastic contribution we can all make to our community when given the right opportunities.

“We want to support the community to take away any barriers that might exist for anybody with a disability to live a full and enriching life”.

The City of Albany in partnership with Department of Communities, International Day of People with Disability and IGA, support and encourage everyone to head to Spencer Park Shopping Centre and enjoy the festivities.
