Disability in the limelight

PRAIRIEWOOD'S Rebecca Donatiello will display her artistic skills at this year's Northcott's SHINE event.

Coinciding with International Day of People with Disability , the event aims to celebrate the talent and achievements of people with disabilities.

"I want people to realise that we can do as much as they can," Ms Donatiello said.

"By coming to SHINE, people will get an idea of what we do at Northcott and they will have a good time."

The showcase will feature high-energy live performances, multimedia elements and visual displays.

There will also be art and photography displays, individual and group performances, as well as engaging videos about the people who use the Northcott's Community Participation program in Parramatta.

The 28-year-old, who has cerebral palsy, said she was looking forward to showing off her artwork at the showcase on December 3.

SHINE aims to promote an inclusive society where people of all abilities can be celebrated. The event will be held at Riverside Theatres in Parramatta on December 3 from 6.30pm.

Tickets cost $15, with all funds going towards the CP Program in Parramatta.
