Disabled Recreation

Enabling those with disabilities to enjoy modern frivolity

Implications - Discussions around inclusion of the disabled community tend to employ a more pragmatic approach, focusing on accessibility, the medical industry, and injustices. These topics are important, however living with a disability also encompasses how to approach life's small pleasures given the circumstances. Brands are stepping forward to lead the charge, enabling those with disabilities to indulge. This shows that in discussions surrounding inclusivity, even small, seemingly frivolous activities associated with modern living must be called into question.

Workshop Question - How can you approach diversity and inclusivity in a way that incorporates fun?
