Creative approaches for inclusion and diversity

Friday 3 December, 2.30-4:00pm
Carclew, Kaurna Country, 11 Jeffcott St, North Adelaide

Constant conversation, story sharing and awareness building is needed to ensure our workplaces, projects and teams are inclusive and diverse. The subject is deep and complex.

Mark Reilly (he/him)
Mark a.k.a. Marcus McFly was born with a rare disability known as undiagnosed congenital myopathy which affects his ability to stand or walk. Growing up with this condition has made things more challenging but it hasn’t stopped him from pursuing his passion for music. Since the age of 10, Mark has been writing songs inspired by the unique sounds, lyrics and style of hip-hop. He currently works with Northern Sound System's weekly hip-hop program that gives the youth in the Northern suburbs an opportunity to compose and record their own songs. In 2018 Mark joined the Carclew family as a Creative Consultant, which has helped him to hone his skills as a workshop facilitator and inspired him to seek more opportunities in this field.
