Scope is delighted to be hosting a one day workshop presented by Dr. Wendy Keay-Bright. Design Director, Cariad Interactive and Director, Centre for Applied Research in Inclusive Arts and Design (CARIAD), Cardiff Metropolitan University. 

Towards Inclusive Design

Using gesture-based interactive arts environments support a range of outcomes for people with a learning disability.

Wendy is an award winning designer and  researcher, internationally known for using participatory design methods to co-create software applications that encourage interaction, self expression and creativity for people with learning difficulties.

Participatory design ensures the users are actively engaged in the design process from concept to completion through face to face experiences. Wendy has demonstrated that co-creation can “bridge the gap” from disconnection to participation and inclusion. The results of Wendy’s research are applications that are highly motivating to the user, amplifying their ability to interact and be included in ways that are meaningful to them.

This workshop will introduce two new applications, Somability and Somatopia.

Workshop participants will plan, design and create inclusive digital arts activities that support a range of outcomes for the people they support.
