Re•Vision: The Centre for Art and Social Justice at the University of Guelph
Tangled Art + Disability.
Goal of the Bodies in Translation project:
Create access to art for non-normatively embodied people and opportunities for the public to engage with such art, in order to:
expand understanding of non-normative vitality and advance social justice in Ontario.
Goal of the knowledge platform:
Provide accessible and inclusive teaching/learning tools that will facilitate the sharing of digital information (as described above).
Spark the curiosity of those who might not otherwise imagine inclusive ways of working.
Goal of the co-design sessions:
Collaboratively generate design ideas for the knowledge platform in interactive, useful and playful ways, considering:
what the knowledge platform could be, what potential users want to see in a platform, and how users would want to engage with the platform.
