The issues and opportunities confronting Australia’s Indigenous people with disability are under the spotlight in Unfinished Business, a multi-media exhibition.

Unfinished Business, by award-winning artist Belinda Mason, captures on film the stories of 30 people with disability from Indigenous communities. Through their involvement in the project, each participant draws attention to critical issues that impact on their lives, representing a wide range of disability experiences – acquired, congenital, sensory, psychological, intellectual, visible and invisible.

The 2015-2016 Australian regional tour began in Darwin and will travel through regional centres and onto Melbourne over the next eight months.
