March / Inclusivity or exclusivity? The role of design in an ever changing world. Powered by Pecha Kucha.

AGDA’s Pecha Kucha returns for Sydney Design Festival 2019.
Accessibility, participatory design, and designing for diversity and inclusion are hot topics right now. But what is the role of design? Is design about accessibility, or is design about exclusivity? Some would argue design has always been about who not to design for. In this Pecha Kucha format (which was a sell out in 2018), we have 7 industry-leading designers to give their point of view on the topic.

How do we design for diversity and inclusion?
Is brand and communication design actually about exclusivity?
Is co-design a fundamental requirement of design accessibility?
Is Human Centred Design the same as Humanity Centred Design?
What’s the role of AI in design accessibility?

The Pecha Kucha Format:
Pecha Kucha is a dynamic presentation style where each slide appears on screen for 20 seconds and automatically moves onto the next slide after those 20 seconds. A total of 20 slides make up a complete presentation, giving the speaker a concise 6 minutes and 40 seconds to present. As you can imagine it’s thrilling to watch (and thrilling to do).
