About the Studio
In the Access Studio, we’re shaping accessibility education for the 21st century. Our approach is simple: Learn by doing.
Within our studio, we co-create, iterate, test boundaries, and evolve. With modern, relevant content and experiential learning opportunities, we’re shaping the next generation of accessibility advocates and allies.
Join us in refreshing accessibility concepts and creating a more inclusive world together.
We empower individuals and organizations with the knowledge and tools to foster inclusivity and accessibility in the 21st century. Through experiential learning, collaboration, and a commitment to co-creation, we aim to shape a world where accessibility is intuitively part of every environment, creating equitable experiences for all.
A future where every individual, regardless of their abilities, can participate fully in society; Access Studio envisions a world where accessibility is embedded in the fabric of our culture and where the next generation of accessibility advocates and allies leads the way in breaking down barriers and championing inclusivity, ensuring that no one is left behind.
