“Engaging in Disability as a Creative Practice”
Liz Jackson, The Girl with the Purple Cane

Designers are increasingly referring to disability in terms of accessibility. But accessibility is only one part of disability; it’s the need. And it is being taught at the exclusion of disability history, disability culture and disability theory. Liz discusses the impact of engaging in disability, not as a problem to be solved, but rather as a discipline and a creative practice. This presentation will teach designers how to design WITH, rather than for disability.
