Accessibility in Design: Accessibility Powers Creativity

Presented by Meggan Van Harten RGD. Moderated by Magued Hanna RGD.




Talk: Accessibility in Action: Indigenous Communities

We know accessibility is good for all but what happens when accessibility principles don’t work for all Indigenous communities? In this talk, Meggan will explore how cultural considerations and Indigenous perspectives encourage increased uptake of accessibility principles and how you can apply accessibility standards in a meaningful way for an Indigenous audience. Meggan will share her agency experience and how Design de Plume has created accessible Indigenous projects that are engaging and relatable for Indigenous audiences.
