Grit Media was established in 2005. We make the award winning community television series No Limits which screens on community television across Australia and now in New Zealand and Canada. No Limits is everything about disability but we also create other media that smashes preconceptions about disability. We've just launched our new accessibility website: www.travelling chair.net
We are also developing a comedy series with wise comedy man Jeff Browett mentoring a group of enthusiastic writers and storytellers. We make The Boldness radio show, produce short films and this year our other new project is Wonky Life - a series of audio stories for pod cast.
We are a lean little organisation with only 2 part time staff. CEO Sarah Barton returned to Grit Media in November 2011. She was part of the original team who set up Grit Media and has a strong and long standing track record producing media that advances the rights of people with disabilities and also heads her own production company fertile films (www.fertilefilms.com.au).
Sarah is ably assisted by the multi-talented Beau Kondos and a committed group of volunteers who keep the good ship Grit Media afloat.
Right now we really need a quick, sharp injection of funds to help get No Limits back on air this year and also to kick start our new comedy project.
