    Event description

    illustrated logo for Our Choice Expo

    The Our Choice Expo is conducted during HaS (Having a Say Conference) which is a national disability conference with a difference. It has people with disability involved at every level, from planning to volunteering. Plus, it ‘brings the fun’ like no other conference.

    HaS has an average attendance of 1,000+ participants each year from every Australian state and across Victoria. We expect to be back to normal numbers in 2024 after 850 people attended the post-COVID conference in 2023.

    Having a Say continues to be an event full of events, that is, there are five events within the overall conference: the Our Choice Expo, Talent Show (formerly Red Faces), Come & Try Activities, Art Competition and self-advocacy awards. All activities are focused on providing people with a disability with opportunities to contribute, learn, present, perform, celebrate achievement, be inspired by their peers and experience new things.

    Aims of the Having a Say Conference

    The Having a Say Conference aims to empower people with disability through:

    • Opportunities to celebrate ability and achievement
    • Being part of the planning and running of the conference
    • Participation in an annual conference in a location outside Melbourne
    • The opportunity to ‘have a say’ about issues that affect their lives
    • Opportunities to be heard by politicians, government and service providers
    • The opportunity to meet people from around Victoria, Australia and overseas
