This semester, we partnered with the Cambridge Arts Council to design an exhibition called "In:Accessible." The working exhibition was created by our students with the support of our NuVu Coaches. The exhibition is located in Gallery 344 at City Hall Annex and showcases our students' work on innovative products for people with disabilities.
In Gallery 344 at City Hall Annex, In:Accessible presents both the process and content of learning at NuVu. The students explore and expand the notion of access in the public and private realm within cities. They raise questions about how a city engenders openness, freedom, and opportunity for the people, animals, and plants who inhabit it. By looking at access through a variety of lenses (social, spatial, physical, physiological, psychological), In:Accessible illuminates potential connections that might allow people to transcend the barriers inhibiting participation.
In:Accessible examines the rights and ownership of civic spaces: how transportation infrastructure (bike lanes, crosswalks, bus stops, T stations) can connect and disconnect residents; how racial and socioeconomic segregation grows in a city; and how gender identity can shape a place.
This past March, our students installed Part I of In:Accessible, presenting distillations, concept prototypes, and work based on their research and design development.
