Create Your Future is a film project showcasing the successes and challenges experienced by people with disability from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) backgrounds. These films aim to build aspiration for tertiary education and employment amongst those facing similar issues, and to create deeper and broader cultural understandings to encourage culturally safe, accessible and inclusive support services.

Original short films, made with and for people with disability from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, sharing personal stories from their own unique cultural perspective.
