Neave Darmody, one of the Chamaeleon Collective dancers shaking things up at Bunnings!
She lost her hospitality job during the first COVID-19 lockdown, but has found work helping in the garden section at Bunnings Fyshwick.
"You might see me in the garden, watering the plants ... You might also see me in the café, putting food out, wiping tables down or sweeping the floor," Neave told ABC Radio Canberra.
Neave's mum Marion says having a job builds her daughter's confidence and givers her a routine.
"She just loves it, it's a normal thing to do."
Marion says Neave was exicted to see Dylan Alcott's win at the Australian of the Year awards earlier in the week.
"We watched it. It was really exciting. She recognises people with disabilities, and just as Dylan said, she needs to see what people with disabilities are achieving."

'Your Different / My Same' by Josh Twee uses dance, text and physical theatre to explore the human condition. Together with Matt 'Shillie' Shilcock , Josh explores the perceptions of ability/disability and the body.
The work investigates philosophical and practical connotations of physical and internal capabilities and the blurred conceptual line between function and dysfunction.
Discussing the collaboration with Matthew, Josh says, “We share lived experience. I have had many insightful and inspiring conversations with Matthew on the topic of accessibility, empowerment, awareness, and just getting it done in everyday life”.
