How does one demand an authentic place in a world regarded from the outside and only enjoyed vicariously? Or achieve acceptance in a world you have always been kept a safe distance from?

Welcome to State of Independence... a game where you must navigate your way through zones of impediments in order to find your independent future.

Is it Game On or Game Over?

Join Unanima's company of storytellers as they take you through the tensions and messiness of being labelled as having intellectual and developmental disabilities. 
How this is experienced, how this is ignored, and how this affects aspects of identity and cultural capacity, for both the individual and carer in society today.

Welcome to my world, won’t you come on in… built with YOU in mind.

Things have to change. #NotSatisfied!  #AreYouSatisfied?!
