As part of MACH’S AUF!, we will explore the following topics through a series of lectures and interactive workshops in which deaf and hearing people come together:
explore the issue in detail
generate ideas for alternatives
try and evaluate them at Metalab
What does it take for deaf people to learn technical skills? Which technologies do deaf people want to design themselves? How can we break down barriers without marginalized social groups being disadvantaged?
With these questions we view the project as a starting point to establish accessibility in creative and cultural places. We also want to draw attention to sustainable effectiveness, guide the careful use of natural resources and repair culture.
