Join artisan’s curator Kevin Wilson for an insightful floor talk through artisan’s latest exhibition Agency by Design: Expressive Design for Disability. Kevin states:
“We were interested in looking at how good design can engender agency in someone living with disability. We wanted to hear from designers who live with a disability, or organisations and business that work closely with the disability community, to learn from their experiences around adaptive and inclusive design.”
Many of the designs profiled in this exhibition allow the wearer to project a powerful image of how they want to be seen, whether that be glamorous, elegant, strong or simply just wanting to reveal their own life passions.
