Event description
What is Inclusive Design, and how does it relate to wellbeing? An interdisciplinary panellists conversation.

About this Event

This event is part of Melbourne Design Week 2021, an initiative of the Victorian Government in collaboration with the NGV.

What is Inclusive Design and how does it relate to wellbeing?

According to the 2009 National Disability Strategy Consultation Report, Shut Out: The Experience of People with Disabilities and their Families in Australia, the built environment is noted as one of the main barriers to day-to-day social inclusion. Social exclusion and isolations can affect wellbeing, mentally and physically. What is our current understanding of inclusive design, particularly in public spaces, and its correlation to wellbeing?

Sonya Veronica Iskandar presents and moderates an inter-disciplinary panellists conversation.

Independently organised, this event is partly sponsored by ShawContract and supported by Swinburne University of Technology.

Event Image description: A close-up of stair-ramp combination at the entrance of Museum Leuven in Leuven, Belgium with overlay of blue graphic and text. The text is a quote from Shut Out: The Experience of People with Disabilities and their Families in Australia (2009). The quote says, “I do not expect to get access to the pyramids and Uluru but I do want to get into all of the libraries and all of the community centres”.
