Embassy of Inclusive Society conference

During the conference, we will reflect on questions around accessibility, in the broadest sense of the word, and inclusivity as a (un)learning process. We organise conversations, panels and moments of connection with makers, designers and experts from different parts of society.

In the morning, Concrete Blossom presents the ‘Campus for Everyday Knowledge’. In the afternoon, we explore different design practices, perspectives, positions and lived experiences for building a more inclusive society.
