Design For All Week

8-12 April 2019

Design for All (DfA) Week is a weeklong conversation about Design and its role in enabling social inclusion, equity and accessible everyday experiences for people living with disabilities.

Across three free events, researchers, artists, designers and thought leaders from Australia and around the world will share their insights on the creative and ethical challenge designers face in their critical responsibility to design for human diversity.

QUT Design Lab believes that Design is no longer just a noun, but a verb. It is not just an object, but an action. It is not just an artefact, but an approach. Design resists stasis: it enables, disrupts, innovates, mediates, and facilitates. Uniquely equipped to deliver social, cultural, political, economic and environmental impacts, design drives value creation and innovation in the 21st century.

It is through this lens that the following events have been curated.
