Call for Participants: People with Disabilities (Parents & Community) Focus Group

Do you feel seen?

Are there authentic portrayals of your community in Canadian media, or are there gaps in the way you are represented?

The Black Screen Office is conducting a Canada-wide study about the representation of Black, People of Colour, LGBTQ2+ and Persons with Disabilities in film, TV and interactive media, including a special report on Children’s Media.

“Being Seen” aims to create directives for the media industry to be more inclusive and authentic in its representation of underrepresented communities.

We invite you to participate in an hour-long focus group.

All who participate in a focus group will be paid an honorarium of $50 each provided that they are not participating in the capacity of their employment.
