Hello Inclusive Design Thinkers:

We would  like to present your work to an audience of over 300 people at the ORION diThink Conference http://www.thinkconference.ca/agenda-2016/  on May 26 from 1-1:45

You won't have to show your work yourself  but we'd love to have you participate (and if you do then you can go to the conference for FREE!)

This is an invaluable opportunity for you to introduce your original design contributions and area of expertise to the wider technology and design community, foster connections with other experts and designers and expand your professional networks. We encourage you to participate with your projects in this unique conference and our entertaining showcase.

We're going to give a show that will help others understand the inclusive future by giving a minute or so of fame to student projects (as well as design jam and hackathon projects). We are showing ideas for the future so you don't need to have something that exists yet-a model/description is just fine.

Projects will be organized into themes:

1)      Home
2)      Education
3)      Transportation
4)      Translation & Communication
5)      Health and Wellness
6)      Animals
7)      Wearables and Personalization of Technology

The minimum you need to do to participate is:

1)      If you know what theme you fit in, then choose it
2)      Tell us your project title and describe it
3)      Tell us how you usually demonstrate your project (e.g. poster, slide, video, mime, etc.)
4)      Let us know what you can give us to help illustrate your project (e.g. a thing, a slide, etc)
5)      Let us know if you will help at the show

You can respond on our google form   http://goo.gl/forms/QKNoPSuCVa or send your responses by email to vroberts at ocadu.ca<mailto:vroberts at ocadu.ca>

Please respond before Wednesday, May 18th to be sure we can include you.
