Invitation from Bodies in Translation: Activist Art, Technology and Access to Life

Greetings. This is an invitation from Bodies in Translation: Activist Art, Technology and Access to Life to participate in a co-design session. A co-design session is an opportunity for members of diverse communities to come together to collaborate, experiment, and explore a problem or project. The objective of this session is to explore different perspectives on sharing digital information and creating teaching and learning tools in interactive, useful and playful ways. We will imagine a dynamic Knowledge Platform, which will be used as a teaching and learning space on disability and activist arts. We will be playing, discovering, and learning from each other. Your unique experiences and perspectives are what we value at this event. The only expectation for the session is that you participate in whatever ways work best for you. Bodies in Translation is a community/university activist art project at the University of Guelph in partnership with Ryerson University and Tangled Art + Disability. We have partnered with the Inclusive Design Research Centre at the Ontario College of Art and Design to produce the co-design session. We invite you to participate in the co-design session on May 30th, 2019 from 9:30am-2:30pm, at the Ontario College of Art and Design University, 49 McCaul Street in Toronto. The session will be ASL interpreted, the building is accessible to mobility device users, and we will be serving lunch. We offer a $200 honorarium to non-faculty participants. If you would like to participate, have questions, or to arrange a VRS call, contact Kayla Besse at kbesse@uoguelph.ca. Visit the Bodies in Translation website at www.bodiesintranslation.ca Thank you! We hope to see you there.
