LAB 27

Starting from divergence

Ilianna Ginnis + Coral Gillett, Matthew McShane & Camila Shirota

19 April 2024

LAB 27 explores the potential of designing with and for people with diverse neurodevelopmental disabilities and physical disabilities. Our speakers will explore the potential of disability as a creative generator, and how this can both enable design and remove potential marginalisation.

Come along to learn about tools and strategies for meaningful design and how built environment professionals can better incorporate appropriate engagement and interaction with people with neurodevelopmental disabilities in the design process. 

Join us for a great session with llianna Ginnis of Monash University and Coral Gillett, Matthew McShane and Camila Shirota of the Hopkins Centre, in conversation with convener Kali Marnane and Rebecca McLaughlan.
