The woman making her wheelchair scuba-dives into art

When Sue Austin was 29, she fell ill and was left needing to use a wheelchair. But that didn’t stop her from doing an ambitious dive in Egypt’s Red Sea using a specially adapted wheelchair. Sue was inspired by that experience to challenge perceptions of people with disabilities, by creating an immersive art project charting her own positive journey as a wheelchair-user.
