This project contributed with values beyond design. It took people with difference to do something different and a community to support them.
A refreshing approach to a sensitive subject that has created opportunities through a deceptively simple design solution to generate conversations, engender support and a sense of community.
This is a real social change exemplar. It puts the ‘ability’ into ‘disability’ without the normal ‘ableist’ narratives. It shows disabled people as having agency, mana and enterprise. It also challenges peoples’ notions and stereotypes of disability by using design effectively.
Bold and innovative in an oversaturated market. Community personified!
