Participate in a workshop about research and inclusive design approaches to develop an inclusive visitor centre in Geelong
Co-designing the brief for a Geelong Inclusive Visitor Centre.
This workshop focuses on five principles of action:
- Adopt inclusive co-research and co-design approaches for development;
- Embed principles of Universal Design;
- Ensure built environment improvements are available for all;
- Prioritise attitudinal change towards inclusion and access; and
- Adopt inclusion as a core value for Geelong.
Uniquely within the global context of research into the design of cities, the AIG project applied a systems-thinking approach so that a wide range of stakeholders – disability advocates, people with disability and those most at risk of exclusion – could work with government, policy leaders and researchers to identify approaches to overcome entrenched obstacles to accessibility and inclusivity. Our event continues this process of co-design and co-research to move forward with the implementation of our recommendations with the community that have design implications for the built environment.
This workshop is part of a Deakin University research project investigating accessibility and inclusivity in Geelong. Participants will be asked to consent to participate.
