Dear colleagues,

The BIG IDeA<http://bigidea.one/>  project at OCAD U would like to invite you and your students to be a part of the Inclusive Design Challenge during the Toronto Maker Festival. This year we will explore inclusive design as it relates to making businesses more accessible. We need creative solutions to all kinds of challenges that we already know about like an easy, free accessible menu app, hearing in a noisy environment, improving on portable ramps, creating a better way to drink beer through a straw, displaying goods in crowded spaces, providing service even when people can’t access the building as well as challenges we’re still learning about.

You can learn more about BIG IDeA and share more challenges by visiting us at our Maker Festival booth (date and locations are below) or by visiting our web site www.bigidea.one<http://www.bigidea.one/>

Event name: Maker Festival Extravaganza 2017
Location: Toronto Reference Library, 789 Yonge St, M4W 2G8, Toronto
Time: July 8th 9:00 AM to July 9th 5:00 PM

Don’t forget to register for our Inclusive Design Challenge which will be held one week after the Maker Festival
