According to the WHO (the World Health Organization) 20% of the global population has a permanent or temporary disability. So why don’t we consider this when we communicate? And if we add to the disabilities characteristics of gender, age, sexual orientation, ethnicity, we discover how many things there are to consider in order to be inclusive. Precisely for this reason it is increasingly important to use a welcoming language in daily life, a language free from prejudice and stereotypes, capable of representing and involving every person.
How to refer to a certain category? How to create an accessible product? What precautions to keep in mind when we speak, write, design, lay out graphics, communicate?
Moving from theory to practice, there are numerous tools and best practices to make your content accessible to everyone. The purpose of the “Accessibility Lab” Workshop with Francesca Musolino is therefore to learn how to use and validate accessible and inclusive languages and contents, to apply them to daily life.
This 4-hour workshop will take place in person. To participate, you must register by the midnight of 25.05 via email to hello@weighstation.eu. Places will be limited to 20 participants and the cost is 20 euros per person.
