The Art of Access: Introduction to Inclusive Design

Date:

Wed, Sept 22, 2021

PAC's Founder, Sina Bahram, and Corey Timpson, long-time friend and collaborator, presented their Introduction to the Practice of Inclusion workshop to a group of arts and cultural workers in Raleigh, NC and nationwide. The discussion covered the fundamentals of inclusive design and accessibility, focusing specifically on low/no-cost ways of thinking about access and inclusion throughout the lifecycle of a project. Further, Corey and Sina shared their overall inclusive design methodology, and presented the results of a collaboration with the amazing folks at the Boise Art Museum on embedding inclusive design in the Many Wests Exhibition, as a case study to illustrate the impact that thoughtful design, even with minimal cost implications, can have on better serving the widest possible audience.
