Imagining the world after Accessibility
Let’s imagine for a second that we’ve reached an era where we’ve managed to implement all the digital and physical accessibility requirements everywhere in the world. Where do we go from there? When it’s no longer necessary to meet basic human rights, we can start focusing on what moves and touches our hearts, what truly makes us excited.
In my talk I’m bringing forth examples of different contemporary works that are already thinking past guidelines and requirements. Even more, accessibility cannot be met with only focusing on codes and measurements. The only way to meet the “New World Criteria” is to look past requirements and learn from and with the real people. This creates an opportunity to get inspiration from the connection with a fellow human being and develop new and clever solutions to everyday phenomenon that we all can benefit from.
