ACAC August Morning Meetup: Universal Design Groups
Join the Arts and Culture Accessibility Cooperative on Wednesday, August 17 from 9-10 AM. Adding accessible features doesn't have to be about adaptations or accommodations. Often, when something is created with everyone in mind, it works better for everyone.
Curb cuts in sidewalks were designed for wheelchairs, but they're utilized every day for strollers, suitcases, skateboards, and more.
We'll learn about how bringing together a group of individuals with a variety of disabilities for consultation or development can help create a more universally equitable and enjoyable experience for all.
