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.

Always Freedom Fighting

Always Freedom Fighting

Tokyo

Greetings from the land of the rising sun!

After the grueling flight, we got to our Tokyo hotel with ourselves and the wheelchair etc intact. After checking in at 2pm Japan time (and missed a nights sleep while flying), we planned to have a short nap, go out for dinner and climatise to our new time zone. Instead, waking up at all was […]

The tube and disability

The tube and disability

The recent London tube strikes left me lost for words. I watched and felt concerned by the frenzy such an incident could cause. However, I was more concerned how a large group of people have their lives disrupted, and are segregated from the normality everyday, but without any public attention. It pains me to be […]

Accessing Center Parcs

Around a fortnight ago I was lucky enough to be invited by Center Parcs to review their accessibility features. Having been there when I was 8 years old, I was interested to see how it had changed and how it would be for a disabled adult. I was first struck by the organisation and awareness […]
