In this three-day workshop, led by Marije Baalman and Simon Dogger, you can learn how to design and build a functional prototype that improves accessibility for people with a visual impairment. We will work together as a group and smaller subgroups, from discussion, concept and experiment to realization, to give you the knowledge, tools and support towards realising your own design.

We are looking for a diverse group of people, all with different abilities, to take part. The workshops are free of entrance, but registration is required and the number of participants is limited. Sign up through this form and please make sure you can join all three days of the workshop.

The workshops aim for a substantial representation of people with disabilities, in the roles of workshop leader, participant and user. By working with disability-led organizations and individuals, we create an inclusive work space and flexible working methods.

For questions about the accessibility of the event or more information contact us at inclusive@impakt.nl 

On 20 December 2019 we organise a discussion event at Het Huis in Utrecht, which will lay the foundation for the workshop. More information and tickets 

The series Inclusive Extensions  will focus on how art, design and technology can adapt towards difference and inclusivity in society, recognizing all human value and agency. How inclusive is our current society to people with disabilities? What would an inclusive society look like? What steps need to be taken towards such a society, and what are the solutions that we can design?
