【AXIS collaborative exhibition】TOKYO SOCIAL DESIGN 2024

Welfare and design may seem like a concept that is unrelated to us, but the potential of design methods and outputs in the field of welfare is gaining attention. This event will have three phases. The first is the input part, a symposium in which designers and designers who are involved with welfare offices with people with disabilities can share their insights. The second is the output part, a workshop in which participants can find out what they can do in the future. The last is a networking event in which participants can get to know each other. For people from companies that need to encourage diversity, inclusion, and the employment of people with disabilities, this is a very valuable opportunity to find out recent trends. For two days, you will discover, learn, and start to act. We hope that through this event, we will be able to share and raise awareness of designing society. Please come join us.

About the value of the existence of people with disabilities, from the perspective of design work
At welfare offices with people with disabilities, designers and coordinators use their skills and devote themselves to design work. At this symposium, designers will talk about the advantages of their perspectives, new values that they discovered, and ideas on other topics. They will talk about working with disabled people and how take advantage of their skills. This is the ideal perspective for employers who have concerns about hiring people with disabilities.

Output through Talk Tree WORKSHOP
In this workshop on the first day, participants will reflect and discover what they should do, and for whom. On the second day, participants will form fictional teams, discuss what they should do, and use their various values to come up with ideas.
