Make your move In this issue of Inform we celebrate the art of movement, and the personal significance it has for everyone. In our feature story we explore the world of disability dance and physical theatre with Weave Movement Theatre, and chat to its co-founder Janice Florence. We follow the history of this unique company and look at why it is important to break down preconceptions and misconceptions about disability. Also in this issue we chat to Ryan, a wheelchair user who offers his advice on how to best plan a night out. In this article Ryan addresses the challenges many wheelchair users face when going out, and offers creative ways to break the habit of ‘staying in’. We are also excited to share with you that we have recently launched our new website, InformOnline. org.au – a national information hub for people with disabilities. Launched last month, InformOnline is your one stop shop for disability information with articles and contributors from all over the country. To find out more visit www.informonline.org.au The Inform team is committed to bringing you quality, informative content wherever you are in Australia, so we encourage you to get in touch with us if you have a story of independence to share. You can reach the team at inform@iagroup.org.au
