Perspective Shift was a three-part documentary series that explored the triumphs and trials of three of Australia’s top practitioners in the arts industries, who also happen to be people with disability.  Each 30-minute episode focuses on one individual excelling in an area of the Arts and explores their craft and their life experiences. 

People living with disability are often portrayed in the media through a lens of pity or a source of inspiration for just doing something everyday.  Taste Entertainment’s approach was to tell the stories of people with disability who had achieved amazing things by the world’s standards, and they would just happen to have a disability. The result is two seasons of the beautiful TV mini series called ‘Perspective Shift’.
