Videos

Martyn SibleyWhen words are not enough, what can one do? I say grab the flipcam and film it!

.

My videos show things in a new, interesting and exciting way. They often cover more thrilling occurrences; such as my world travels, flying a plane, or interviewing someone else of interest to you. The same ethos applies – inspire, inform and change.

.

People have said how the videos get across my positive attitude to life, silly sense of humour and useful approaches to overcoming the everyday barriers of life.

Community Projects

I run my own digital community projects for you - disabled people, friends/family/professionals to disabled people, and anyone generally interested. They aim to bring people together; to share, learn and empower each other.

 

The best solutions come from disabled people themselves. However the more society and government understands the problems we face, and knows their own specific actions towards a solution; social change will occur faster.

San Juan: Sparklers, Fireworks and Bonfires

On Monday 23rd June 2014, Kasia and I attended an amazing beach party. If I hadn’t have seen the posters before hand or the dutiful bonfire on the beach, I’d have thought we were amongst a war zone! It all started last week. Kasia was visiting a friend in Seville and my German friend Rico […]

Driving Dreams

Driving Dreams

When I was a teenager I had youthful exuberance and disability demons in abundance. Quite a weird combination. So much of me wanted to see the world and change it at the same time. However having Spinal Muscular Atrophy meant feeling it was all impossible for poor little me. Being able to drive is an […]

Knowing Your Value and Believing In It

Knowing Your Value and Believing In It

In my last written post I discussed how to increase your creativity by reducing money worries. I now want to share some thoughts on simply increasing your income. The main reason being that homelessness and starvation aren’t good for your creativity either! It’s a fact, whether you’re disabled or not, money matters. For my disabled […]

May Day ‘MangaTuna’ Festival

May Day ‘MangaTuna’ Festival

During the recent UK bank holiday weekend, I’ve been experiencing a very new Spanish cultural education. I knew from my time in Asturias that they also celebrated this weekend. I didn’t know that L’Ametlla de Mar would be so different. Our first awareness of the ‘MangaTuna’ festival was when we stopped in the tourist information […]
