Wendy Returns to Oz
Dr Wendy Keay-Bright was amongst the keynote speakers for October’s Autism-friendly Design Conference. Organised by The National Autistic Society and hosted at the Royal College of Art, London the event outlined recommendations and concepts that show good practice in the design of buildings and technology. This was followed by a trip to Melbourne, Australia to deliver two workshops in November. The first, “Somability: An interactive art experience for improving self-confidence and physical fitness for people with Physical and Intellectual Disabilities”, is for the Australasian Society for Intellectual Disability 50th Anniversary Conference. The second, “Towards Inclusive Design: Using gesture-based interactive arts environments support a range of outcomes for people with a learning disability”‘ is for the charity Scope, Communication and Inclusion Resource Centre.
