In November 2013, UCP’s Life Labs partnered with Google, and UK-based Enabled by Design and FutureGov to hold their first Washington, D.C.-based Enabled by Design-athon. The event brought together over 100 designers, makers, hackers, and health care professionals, to hear from innovation experts, participate in an immersive usability workshop, and work in teams to create their own prototypes for people with disabilities. The event was a huge success and couldn’t have happened without Google, Enabled by Design, FutureGov, and many generous sponsors.
UCP’s Australian affiliate, the Cerebral Palsy Alliance, has now partnered with the University of Technology Sydney to launch a two-day Enabled by Design-athon in collaboration with UK-based Enabled by Design and FutureGov. The event happens on July 25 & 26, 2014 and will include lightning talks, empathy exercises, team challenges, and prototype presentations and judging.
If you are interested in attending, participating, or would like more information, reach out to Robyn Cummins at the Cerebral Palsy Alliance at +62 2 9975 8712 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
