Ableist Cities Symposium

A one day symposium on reshaping inaccessible buildings and infrastructures in Australian cities

This symposium will examine topics of accessibility in Australian cities, thirty years on from the introduction of the landmark Disability Discrimination Act and the social model of disability as a framework for examining barriers in place for people with disability

Join us as we explore the answers to questions like:

  • Are our cities still fundamentally ableist in not yet having provided universal accessibility?
  • Are we rebuilding our cities the right way? Where are we in terms of universal public transport systems within our cities? Where
  • might innovations disrupt the field? And what is the scale of change still required?
