A Conversation with Matilda Feyisayo Ibini Part 2: The Power of Stories
*Watch the captioned video HERE *Read the accessible transcript HERE *Listen to Part 1 of Matilda’s story HERE. In the third episode of Broadcastability Season 2, co-hosts Chloë and Isabelle interview Matilda Feyisayo Ibini, a Nigerian-British playwright and screenwriter. In this episode, Ibini shares her advice for disabled young people who want to go into the arts industry, her ideas for making the arts more inclusive, and her understanding of how narratives shape cultural attitudes and policies - and therefore, how storytelling can be a force for positive change.   Within this framework, she articulates a pressing need to renovate the social imaginary about disability and employment: that disabled individuals can substantively contribute to their communities even though they may require personal or other supports.Episode Credits Hosts: Chloë Atkins and Isabelle Avakumovic-Pointon Editing: Isabelle Avakumovic-Pointon Transcript: Isabelle Avakumovic-Pointon Music: Justin LaurieImage description for photo of Matilda: A smiling person with dark brown skin and black glasses.
