Designing Accessibility: People, Artifacts, and Access
Design Redefined is series of events seeking to challenge our perception of design as a process of enhancing aesthetics, usability, or marketability and moving towards a deeper understanding of it as a powerful tool for change.
Appropriate for high school, undergraduate, and graduate students, as well as design professionals, each session will feature a panel discussion featuring thought leaders, followed by a hands-on exploration of key design principles, light refreshments, and networking. Co-hosted by MIT MAD and Innovators for Purpose.
MIT MAD’s Rosa Weinberg will moderate a panel discussion examining design for accessibility. Centering on the experiences of PEOPLE with disabilities, we will explore the opportunities and challenges associated with the design of adaptive technologies and ARTIFACTS. We will also explore how explicit design of the built environment enhances or hinders ACCESS for all.
