Reimagining Mobility: a Conversation Hub

What constitutes mobility and who gets to define it?


How do we move and explore the world?


What barriers and assumptions limit mobility? 


How do we support all forms of mobility throughout the lifespan?

Digital artist Francis Tsai, an asian man, sitting in his wheelchair in front of a computer screen, where he is using eye gaze tools to create art. His left leg is crossed over his right, and his arms are supported by his wheelchair and his palms are facing up. There are two windows with blinds drawn in the background.

Mobility is about more than how we get from Point A to Point B. Regardless of form, mobility is a medium through which  we interact and engage with the world. Yet, assumptions about “normal” or “acceptable” ways to move are literally cemented into our world.

Join us for a series of conversations imagining the future of mobility. Hosted by CREATE Associate Directors Kat Steele and Heather Feldner, we aim to connect and learn from guests who are engaged in critical mobility work – ranging from researchers to small business owners to self-advocates. We will dive deeply into conversations about mobility as a multifaceted concept, and explore how it intersects with other dimensions of access across contexts of research, education, and public policy.
