Inclusive London Interaction Day
Hosted by IxDA London
IxDA LONDON'S PARTICIPATION AND VISION
IxDA London is participating in Interaction Design Day to host a one-day event on 25 Sept, to bring together a group of passionate practitioners, leaders and advocates to advance the discipline of interaction design through a series of presentations, workshops and most importantly, critical discussions and meaningful dialogue.
We aim to address the "Diversity and Inclusion in Design" theme by curating our programming around the rich diversity of the human condition, believing that this is a foundational perspective that informs all design work impacting us all as a species.
We believe that design practitioners represent a centre ground between, on one end — organisations, power sources, and large-scale systems — and on the other extreme — the vulnerable, poorly represented, and fringe members of society-at-large. To make the right decisions in our position of influence, we need the right tools, knowledge and worldviews to effectively address the breadth of human diversity.
Thus, we hope that this event will help us achieve that.
In line with IxDA's goals for IxDD — create a positive, long-lasting impact — on our participants, our practice, and the world — by facilitating activities that support dialog and discourse.
Extend this impact beyond the event through recordings via video, photography, tweets, and possibly, live streaming.
Enable our key partners — our speakers and workshop facilitators — to not just bring their content and expertise, but to also take advantage of the IxDA platform to enable and guide meaningful, lasting and impactful dialogue with participants signifying the importance of what we do in this space.
