Places of worship can be found in nearly every village, city or town across the UK – centres of community life for many people. But does everyone feel included in these spaces? If not, why not? Join in the debate.
On Wednesday 20 June at the University of Glasgow, the Foundation will be bringing together a diverse panel and audience to explore this issue, and consider some of the following questions:
- Are places of worship inclusive? Which barriers, visible or invisible, could be preventing full participation with places of worship?
- There are around 13.3 million disabled people in the UK (almost one in five of the population). Are their spiritual needs being met? Is their potential contribution to places of workshop being fully recognised?
- What, if any, design or technology changes could be implemented to increase inclusion?
The debate seeks to understand existing challenges, and explore solutions / hacks from an architectural, tech and urban design perspective. The findings will be shared in a Report to be launched this Autumn. Register for free tickets on Eventbrite.
This event is held in partnership with the University of Glasgow, and the Scottish Commission for Learning Disability.
