Panel discussion: Accelerating Inclusion: Workshop on Inclusive Design for Immersive Experiences

Inclusive design creates content that is more accessible and delightful to those with permanent lived experiences of disability, and to all of us who temporarily or situationally move, sense, think or feel differently. Through the Inclusive Design Accelerator challenge, StoryFutures Academy and InGAME have been working with Open Inclusion and XR Access to offer SMEs the opportunity to pilot an experimental inclusive innovation process, and apply innovative approaches and toolkits to design, test and deliver immersive content that provides better experiences for all.
