Kelsey Ellison on “Disability Representation in Film

October 20, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Did you know that disabled people are still among the most underrepresented people in Hollywood, even though globally there are 1 billion disabled people? And did you know that nearly 80% of all disabled roles are portrayed by non-disabled actors? This talk will explore how disability is represented in media, especially in the film industry and screen and behind the screen, highlighting positive examples and places where change is needed. Ellison is an actor, dancer, and online influencer who creates content around her creative endeavors, disability, and LGBTQ life. Hosted by the WSU Access Center and the Disabled Students and Allies Club. Registration for the event: https://accesscenter.wsu.edu/awareness-events/2021-fall-speaker-series/kelsey-ellison/
