“It is easy to forget the barriers that exist in every facet of life for those with a disability,” she said.

“We look forward to the day when a wider range of technologies is available so that people with a hearing or vision impairment may have access to a broader range of experiences and entertainment,” Cr Williams said.

Cr Williams stressed that this was a free event for the whole community.

“Everyone is welcome to attend and I’m looking forward to seeing many community members there.”
