HCDI to engage the local community with inclusive design

For_hcdi

HCDI’s Inclusive Design Research Group will run a public engagement lunchtime event that brings together the local community for a day of inspiration, interaction and fun at Uxbridge on 18th March. Opened by Professor Heinz Wolff, the event will engage diverse groups such as older people, people with disabilities, teenagers and ethnic groups with the idea of ‘How Design Can Work for All!’

This lively event features creative group activities, discussions, prizes and a free lunch. The event is funded by Research Council UK as part of the National Engineering & Science Week Awards 2010 and aims to build relationships between Brunel’s Inclusive Design Research Group and the local community.

Join our HCDI team at Uxbridge on Thursday the 18th of March from 12:30pm to 3:30pm. Bring along an item you love or hate and tell us about it. Prizes to be won!

If you are interested in attending this event, please contact farnaz.nickpour@brunel.ac.uk or chris.mcginley@brunel.ac.uk or call 01895267627
