IN KIND: INCLUSIVE DESIGN FOR SELF AND OTHERS

Derbyshire, Jan IN KIND: INCLUSIVE DESIGN FOR SELF AND OTHERS. [MRP]

Item Type: MRP
Creators: Derbyshire, Jan
Abstract:

Under the influence of devised theatre and improvisation, feminist disability methodology and critical play theory an artist survives the flight between inclusive and design to playfully create new artistic design possibilities in inclusive media and in distribution across digital spaces. Questions are considered around the possibilities of accessibility not exclusively as an act of translation but as an act of aesthetics, an artist’s responsibility to audience inclusion and the intrinsic qualities necessary to develop and push forward accessible initiatives in media and art practices. Additional outcomes include the learning and sharing of valuable practice lessons through vulnerable witnessing and ‘self-­‐inclusion experiments’ that contributed to keeping the artist sane inside the Ivory Tower and in finding recommendations for the teaching and practice of Inclusive Design in the future.
