Options Day: stalls, art show and film festival

Options Day
A range of stall holders were featured at last year's Options Day event.

A film festival showcasing stories about local people of all abilities will be featured at the upcoming Options Day event in Bundaberg on Thursday, 19 September 2019.

Bundaberg Regional Council's Community and Cultural Services portfolio spokesperson Cr Judy Peters said the event opens paths to skills and education for people living with disability.

“Options Day is a fantastic local, annual, community-driven event that invites people to discover the rapidly emerging opportunities in the local disability sector,” Cr Peters said.

“This event offers inclusive hands-on and engaging activities for the whole community, featuring guest speakers, information stalls and a sausage sizzle.”

Cr Peters said the event this year would focus on the theme of opportunities and stories underpinning the changing disability sector.

“As part of this theme, an interactive art installation and Wide Angle Film Festival will be set up, complemented by rides, slides and much more,” Cr Peters said.

“This event is open to the whole community, and will be a great day for the whole family.

“It also doubles as an opportunity for people with disability and their carers to familiarise themselves with some of the service providers and community groups that can support them.”
