Join us for the Fenway Alliance’s Leader2Leader Series working with the UP Inclusive Design Initiative of the Massachusetts Cultural Council.  Hosted by Massachusetts College of Art and Design’s Department of Architecture!

The panel discussion will take place Wednesday, May 4, 2016 from 130 pm to 330 pm at the MASSArt Design and Media Center.

When cities grow and adapt and public spaces are developed to facilitate connection, communication and innovation, design can help develop the variety of human abilities.  The practices of Universal Design pulls outlier populations at the center of design strategies to accommodate human functionality as it interacts with our environment.  A human being evolves along a spectrum of ability and the challenge for the designer of spaces is anticipating these functional limitations.

Join us in a lively conversation about human centered design and the movement to address accommodations for universal and flexible use.
