Micro Inclusive Design Challenge – DEEP 2018

BIG IDeA project at OCAD U would like to invite you to be a part of the next Micro Inclusive Design Challenge – during DEEP Conference 2018. You will have the opportunity to explore inclusive design from two perspectives.

One is to making a businesses and services more accessible. We need creative solutions to all kinds of challenges that we already know about like an easy, free accessible menu app, hearing in a noisy environment, improving on portable ramps, creating a better way to drink beer through a straw, displaying goods in crowded spaces, providing service even when people can’t access the building as well as challenges we’re still learning about. You may have your own challenge to bring or want to partner with a business owner to work on a challenge together.

The second goes around the idea of re-designing or re-inventing one of your creations, products or goods. Send us anything from your business, and we can work together in order to make it more inclusive and accessible for a variety of customers.
