Join us for the 2023 Ableist Cities Symposium - Diversity & Lived Experience in the City: Politics, Policy, and Practice.
This free one-day symposium will focus on the theme of Diversity & Lived Experience in the City: Politics, Policy and Practice.
Drawing inspiration from last year's exploration of spatial justice and the physical and attitudinal barriers faced by individuals with disabilities, this year's Ableist Cities Symposium intends to hear narratives of individual lived experience or co-designed research.
Emphasizing an integrated approach, the symposium seeks to marry the realms of politics, policy, and practical applications to address the pressing challenges faced in the built environment. In giving voice to these narratives, we aim to ignite conversations that will shape our cities to make them more inclusive, equitable, and accessible for all.
The Ableist Cities Symposium is a collaboration between the Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning and the Melbourne Disability Institute at the University of Melbourne.
Funds to subsidise travel and provide support for necessary adjustments are available. For more details, please contact email@example.com.
