Disability & Design Thinking

with
Rachel Economy
As disabled and chronically ill people, we often have to get extremely creative and innovative in designing our lives, filling in the huge gaps in accessibility and occupational support that run rampant in the US medical and social support systems. Yet so often, the moments when we most urgently need this creativity are also the ones in which we feel the most physically or psychologically exhausted. In this workshop, we'll play with a simple design-thinking process that takes you from problem to plan to implementation.
This is a single-session event.

Description

As disabled and chronically ill people, we often have to get extremely creative and innovative in designing our lives, filling in the huge gaps in accessibility and occupational support that run rampant in the US medical and social support systems. Yet so often, the moments when we most urgently need this creativity are also the ones in which we feel the most physically or psychologically exhausted. In this workshop, we'll play with a simple design-thinking process that takes you from problem to plan to implementation, so that any time your need is high but your energy is in the tank, you can use this framework to help you more easefully do the revolutionary thing sick and disabled people have been doing for centuries: build the wildly adaptive worlds we need, now.  We'll share our own design hacks and collective crip & spoonie wisdom, see what emerges, and leave with design tools / frameworks we can apply right away to our spaces and lives. Come spend your lunch break with us!
