Sydney Ideas will be holding a panel discussion on creating inclusive and accessible built environments as part of the University’s program of events for Disability Inclusion Week 2018, 3–7 September 2018.

A panel of practitioners, researchers and people with lived experience of disability will explore how can we develop a view of people and place that is inclusive, universally designed and that gives people with disability access, and importantly, how this can be done seamlessly with equity and dignity?

The event is free and open to all. Online registrations are required.

The Speakers:

  • Sandi Lightfoot — Discipline Specialist, Occupational Therapy, Faculty of Health Sciences, The University of Sydney
  • Andrew Hartwell — Chair, Disability at Work Network, The University of Sydney
  • Nas Campanella (moderator) — journalist and newsreader at ABC and Triple J

The venue is fully accessible, with a hearing loop. Auslan Interpreting and live captioning will be available.
