Tolerance: Ability not Inability

Tolerance Group
Tolerance was a group of non-disabled and disabled people aged between 18 and 25 in the West Yorkshire area. We wanted to make a video that reflected the life of young disabled people in the 21st century. It was important to us as a group, that it was funny, to capture the humour within the group, but at the same time delivered a serious message about what it was like to live with a disability day-to-day.

What is it?

Tolerance: Ability not Inability has evolved into a possible and probable disability festival, to promote and discuss disability in a positive way.


Tolerance, in partnership with other organisation, will offer workshops over a three-day period. Each workshop will focus on different aspects of disability, which relate to the original five themes in the Tolerance film.

• Creative writing
• Film
• Art
• Social media
• Web creation
• Music

The work generated from the workshops will be used in new films that Tolerance: Ability not Inability will create.

How to get involved?

There are a number of different roles that people can help with when setting up the disability festival, including sponsorship, creating partnerships with schools and volunteers to help with the workshops. Please contact us if you can help us in any way, however small.
