Design.Different: Why inclusive design should speak across age, ability, gender and race

8 November 2021 | 4pm – 5pm


Part of the Design.Different Season organised by The Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design.

‘Inclusive’ is a term that has gained traction as organisations rush to reconsider what inclusion means. We talk about inclusivity in four primary ways, including people of all ages, abilities, genders and races. The first two represent a heartland for inclusive design. The second two speak to urgent and necessary conversations. Considering these four attributes is representative of the realities of the 7.6 billion people on the planet.

We will showcase new projects, introduce emerging ideas and create a discussion. We will speak to a deep, global yearning to be more equitable, and inclusive. Come and help set the trajectory, and share your voices. They need to be heard.
