In today’s age of globalisation, issues of accessibility and universality of design are argued to be at the forefront of the industry now more than ever. By achieving accessibility in design are we simply ticking some boxes or are we able to create platforms for those who find themselves with little to none? Can we really claim to design for access and universality without overshadowing its true intent? What does it mean to truly create good and accessible design in all its aspects and who are we, as designers, really creating for?
As the first part of the Eclectic Electric event series in line with the Bachelor of Interior Architecture Grad Show at November 6, Turn me way up, my voice is really low will bring together 7 practitioners with a range of expertise and experience related to the subject of accessibility, from urbanism to fine art, social entrepreneurship to stage design, and lastly interior architecture and brand identity. Each will bring a distinct perspective on this prominent topic. Panelists will answer and discuss questions collected and curated by the BIA Graduation Exhibition committee from the audience and will also take a moderated, live Q&A session from its audience members.
This two-and-half hour forum, brought to you by the Graduation Exhibition Committee of the Bachelor of Interior Architecture of UNSW Sydney in partnership with the Michael Crouch Innovation Centre at UNSW, will take place in the MCIC at UNSW Kensington Campus on the evening of Friday, 8 September starting at 6 pm.
