Diversity in Design
This panel will explore recent work in art and design that foregrounds inclusive practice. Innovative approaches across the fields of art, architecture, fashion, dance and product design will be discussed with a specific focus on disability. During the panel we will hear from experts who have placed the individual needs of the user at the centre of their practice. Utilizing a need for inclusive design as a catalyst for creativity, panellists have made concrete contributions to diverse areas of art and design.
This panel marks the International Day for Persons with Disabilities.
