Disabled Community Connection Network (DCCN) is a monthly communication and information group for people of all ages (16+) with any disability. This group is hosted by the North Shore Disability Resource Centre. This group is facilitated by and for people with disabilities.

The session will focus on the topic of, “working in media as a person with a disability.” This session will feature Grant Hardy. Grant has been blind since birth and is passionate about broadcasting, accessibility, and all things technology. He currently works for Accessible Media as the Bureau Reporter for Vancouver, presenting on a weekly TV show that talks about accessibility, inclusion, and empowering portrayals of people with disabilities. One week the show might tell a story about an entrepreneur with a disability; the next week, an inclusive art show; and the next, a review of a smart speaker. Grant loves the variety of content AMI is able to cover, as well as getting the chance to tell stories that might not otherwise be told. Space is limited, so REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.
