PhotoVoice: Nic Tsourlenes

PhotoVoice_Main_event2.jpg
PhotoVoice is a vibrant photography exhibition that celebrates the diverse community of Kingston, highlighting people of all abilities and disabilities.
 
In this exhibition, showing at G2 Gallery, Moorabbin, photographer Nicole Tsourlenes captures a wide range of community members, showcasing both visible and non-visible abilities in familiar local environments. The exhibition celebrates how these individuals live and contribute to Kingston daily. 
 
In mid-2023, the City of Kingston launched a consultation to develop a four-year All Abilities Action Plan. The plan outlines strategies to enhance access to services and facilities for people with disabilities and increase their opportunities in employment and community activities. During the consultation, the council encouraged residents to share photos reflecting their experiences with disability in Kingston, highlighting both obstacles and positive examples of accessibility. These contributions inspired the PhotoVoice exhibition. 
 
Nicole Tsourlenes emphasises seeing ability over disability. Her statement captures this perspective: “See me, see past my Cerebral Palsy, look beyond my wheelchair and see my photography through my lens.” 

 

This project is part of the City of Kingston's All Abilities Plan for 2024-2028, aiming to foster accessibility and inclusivity.
