11.00am Progress on the National Dialogue on
Universal Housing Design
Dr Margaret Ward
The implementation of universal design in
housing appears to have stalled in spite of
the agreements formed under the National
Dialogue on Universal Housing Design. This
paper outlines the activities of lobby groups
and the opportunities for change in the next
five years.
STEP Up – shape your space
Abigail Elliott
The“STEP Up”project simplified the Universal
Design principles so that recreation centre
staff could easily put them into practice, and
also change their thinking around proactive
inclusion rather than reactive inclusion.
The highlights and knowledge gained in
developing this online training program will
be outlined.
11.30am Universal Housing Design – the New
Zealand experience
Helen James
This presentation looks at how voluntary
UD standards were introduced through
the Lifemark brand. The barriers and
challenges facing Lifemark will be outlined
along with the strategic approach to
business development, language, sales
and consumers that has resulted in over
NZD 1 Billion worth of residential buildings
achieving Lifemark certification.
Design for Everyone Guide: applications
of UD principles to active recreation
infrastructure
Evan Wilkinson
Sport and Recreation Victoria is playing a
leading role in the application of Universal
Design Principles across community sport
and recreation infrastructure and facilities.
This presentation will provide a practical and
informative discussion about the release
of Sport and Recreation Victoria’s Universal
Design Guide,“Design for Everyone”.
12:00pm
LUNCH - EAT AND MEET
Emily Steel is interested in discussing UD in the curriculum; Evan Wilkinson has some
good information to share on government procurement; Dee-Dee San Jose is happy to get
together with delegates from local government; Elise Copeland from Auckland Council
has a mini-presentation about linking the city by train; Geoff Barker has done some great
work with remote Aboriginal communities and cross-cultural design processes; and John
Evernden is happy to take a small group on a Walk-and-Talk to see the new tactile street
signage in Sydney.
Day 1: Tuesday 30 August 2016
1:30pm
Beyond the Front Gate: Universal Mobilities and the Travel Chain
Keynote speaker: Professor Simon Darcy, University of Technology
COMMUNICATIONS COMMUNICATIONS
2:30pm Acoustic Accessibility: The issue of
controlling social noise
Professor Anthony Hogan
One in every six Australians have varying
degrees of hearing loss, yet their needs
are rarely considered. This paper will cover
the issues of hearing loss for this cohort.
The kinds of design issues that need to be
addressed for acoustic inclusion will be
discussed.
Universal Design: Do we have a shared
understanding?
Cathy Basterfield
The 44% of the adult population with non-
functional literacy are rarely considered in
the move for a more inclusive society. Access
to information is a critical factor for inclusion
and this presentation will show how to plan
Easy English in the development of their
written materials, both printed and online.
3:00pm BREAK
BUILT ENVIRONMENT –
INCLUDING EVERYONE
BUILT ENVIRONMENT –
LOCAL GOVERNMENT
3:30pm Inclusion inside the iconic sails of the
Sydney Opera House
Jenny Spinak
The Sydney Opera House is committed
to inclusion and access, but many issues
arise due to its World Heritage listing. This
presentation will outline how the issues were
managed so that people of all abilities are
now included as patrons and performers.
Tactile Street Name Signs
John Evernden
Wayfinding around cities can be difficult for
many people. This presentation outlines the
process of designing and installing tactile
street names on traffic signal poles which
can be touch-read by people who are blind
or have low vision, thereby providing greater
independence and dignity.
4.00pm Angleman Syndrome: How can the built
environment offer inclusion?
Lindsay Perry
The paper will discuss how the built
environment can be designed to be
sympathetic to the inherent needs of
individuals with Angelman Syndrome and in
turn improve participation in the community
for everyone.
Designing Streets for all
City of Whittlesea speaker TBC
The City of Whittlesea set about slowing
traffic to help encourage more people to
start walking. This required a collaborative
approach to plan for the technical and
regulatory issues. This presentation outlines
the process of working towards a universally
designed built environment, for improved
health and wellbeing.
Day 1: Tuesday 30 August 2016
4.30pm Beyond Ramps and Signs – design for
neurodiversity
Emily Steel
To be truly universal, our designs should
accommodate people with sensory
sensitivities (e.g. dyslexia, ADHD, dementia,
autism, bipolar). This session will explore
places, products and communication
strategies that present barriers and
facilitators of inclusion for a neurodiverse
population. Examples of inclusive research
and co-design will be outlined.
On the Dunny Run: Accessible toilets
in Tweed Shire
Una Cowdroy
Suzi Hudson
Partnerships of shared knowledge and
experience improve project outcomes and
influence change in thinking and practice.
This presentation will show how input from
community members highlighted systemic
issues with toilet design as well as other
barriers. The project influenced all levels of
Council and led to changes in protocols and
processes.
5:00pm Close
Day 1: Tuesday 30 August 2016
8:45am
Welcome: The Hon. John Ajaka, Minister for Ageing, Minister for Disability Services, Minister
for Multiculturalism
MC: Nick Rushworth, Executive Officer, Brain Injury Australia
9:00am
Communicating Universal Design Across Virtual and Built Environments
Keynote Address: Professor Gerard Goggin, Media and Communications, The University of
Sydney
9:40am
Universal Support for Universal Design
Keynote Address: The Honourable Kelly Vincent, MLC (South Australia)
10:30am BREAK
POLICY INCLUSION BY SPECIALISED DESIGN
11:00am Universal Design: not just another name
for access
Joe Manton
The difference between access compliance,
which is about disability access and universal
design, which supports usability for everyone
is not well understood and is undermining a
movement forward in inclusive design. This
paper argues that UD is the way forward and
minimum compliance the way of the past.
Summer Foundation’s inclusive model
of housing
Dr Di Winkler
Summer Foundation has developed an
innovative model of housing and support
for people with significant disabilities which
demonstrates that good quality housing that
is accessible and centrally located, improves
quality of life and social inclusion. The aim of
these demonstration projects is to influence
policy and create systemic change.
11:30am Moving from the margins: Embedding
inclusive thinking in design education
Nick Loder and Dr Lisa Stafford
This presentation will discusses to what
extent student’s attitudes and awareness
towards designing for diversity alter or
increase from their learning about social-
spatial justice and inclusive design pedagogy,
and asks what value does awareness-raising
education have on student’s learning about
designing for diversity.
7 Senses: Creating long term vision
through short term interventions
Tobias Volbert
The 7 Senses approach to outdoor spaces
focuses on the design needs of people who
experience neurological, intellectual and
mental health disability. It is a simple yet
versatile framework for improving sensory
engagement with outdoor environments.
The whole of community benefits when
everyone being able to participate more fully.
Day 2: Wednesday 31 August 2016
12.00pm Moving beyond access: Translations
from Policy to practices in interior and
architectural design
Janice Rieger
Through a series of case studies at various
museums in Europe and Canada, this
paper critiques the relationship between
policy and actual spaces. The research
revealed how disability and diversity are
constructed and produced in design. This
presentation challenges design educators
and practitioners to reflect on how diversity
is translated from policy to practice.
Age’n’Dem Friendly Streetscapes
Guy Luscombe
With around 95% of older people opting to
live at home as they age and some 70% of
people with dementia staying in their home
environments, more needs to be done to
enable aged and dementia (what we might
call‘Age’n’Dem’) friendly communities.
The evidence supporting the benefits of
walking for Age’n’Dem people is widespread
and seemingly incontrovertible but how
do Government and policy makers use
this information to practical benefit in the
community?
12:30pm LUNCH 
FUNCTION AND AESTHETICS EMERGENCY EVACUATIONS
1:30pm Aesthetics, Design & Disability – towards
a framework for collaborative design of
assistive technology
Cobie Moore
The design of assistive devices focuses on
function and ignores aesthetics with little
regard for the impact this has on the users.
An alternative design structure involving
the cooperation between individuals with
disabilities, medical professionals, and
industry professionals is proposed.
Should we do more in our Fire Engineering
assessments to address emergency
evacuation
Eliot Reeves
The Building Code is inadequate in its
provision for safely evacuating older people
and people with disability. This paper
provides a comparison between the case for
current alternative solutions and the case
against doing enough, and outlines a way
forward into the future.

Day 2: Wednesday 31 August 2016
Clothing and universal design
Dianne Hodge
Clothes not only give protection against the
elements, but also communicate our social
and cultural identity. Mass market production
techniques ignore bodily diversity and needs
to be turned on its head. This presentation
explores and illustrates a new way of thinking
about clothing design for improving quality
of life.
Universal Design meets the Exit Sign
Lee Wilson
Effective exit signage is essential in
emergency evacuation situations. But not all
exits are suitable for people with disability
and how do you know which are? In Australia
the current approach is limited and people
can experience confusion and delays. This
presentation will discuss the issues and
signage solutions.
2:30pm BREAK
3:00pm
Panel Session Topic: The Economics of Inclusion
The Hon Kelly Vincent, Sally Coddington, Ro Coroneos and Paul Nunnari
Too often inclusion is assumed to be costly and an additional expense. But what is the cost
of not being inclusive?
Our speakers will dispel the myths and show how inclusion improves the bottom line.
3:50pm Q&A Session chaired by Nick Rushworth
4:30pm Close

This paper outlines the activities of lobby groups and the opportunities for change in the next five years. STEP Up – shape your space Abigail Elliott The“STEP Up”project simplified the Universal Design principles so that recreation centre staff could easily put them into practice, and also change their thinking around proactive inclusion rather than reactive inclusion. The highlights and knowledge gained in developing this online training program will be outlined. 11.30am Universal Housing Design – the New Zealand experience Helen James This presentation looks at how voluntary UD standards were introduced through the Lifemark brand. The barriers and challenges facing Lifemark will be outlined along with the strategic approach to business development, language, sales and consumers that has resulted in over NZD 1 Billion worth of residential buildings achieving Lifemark certification. Design for Everyone Guide: applications of UD principles to active recreation infrastructure Evan Wilkinson Sport and Recreation Victoria is playing a leading role in the application of Universal Design Principles across community sport and recreation infrastructure and facilities. This presentation will provide a practical and informative discussion about the release of Sport and Recreation Victoria’s Universal Design Guide,“Design for Everyone”. 12:00pm LUNCH - EAT AND MEET Emily Steel is interested in discussing UD in the curriculum; Evan Wilkinson has some good information to share on government procurement; Dee-Dee San Jose is happy to get together with delegates from local government; Elise Copeland from Auckland Council has a mini-presentation about linking the city by train; Geoff Barker has done some great work with remote Aboriginal communities and cross-cultural design processes; and John Evernden is happy to take a small group on a Walk-and-Talk to see the new tactile street signage in Sydney. Day 1: Tuesday 30 August 2016
  • 3. 1:30pm Beyond the Front Gate: Universal Mobilities and the Travel Chain Keynote speaker: Professor Simon Darcy, University of Technology COMMUNICATIONS COMMUNICATIONS 2:30pm Acoustic Accessibility: The issue of controlling social noise Professor Anthony Hogan One in every six Australians have varying degrees of hearing loss, yet their needs are rarely considered. This paper will cover the issues of hearing loss for this cohort. The kinds of design issues that need to be addressed for acoustic inclusion will be discussed. Universal Design: Do we have a shared understanding? Cathy Basterfield The 44% of the adult population with non- functional literacy are rarely considered in the move for a more inclusive society. Access to information is a critical factor for inclusion and this presentation will show how to plan Easy English in the development of their written materials, both printed and online. 3:00pm BREAK BUILT ENVIRONMENT – INCLUDING EVERYONE BUILT ENVIRONMENT – LOCAL GOVERNMENT 3:30pm Inclusion inside the iconic sails of the Sydney Opera House Jenny Spinak The Sydney Opera House is committed to inclusion and access, but many issues arise due to its World Heritage listing. This presentation will outline how the issues were managed so that people of all abilities are now included as patrons and performers. Tactile Street Name Signs John Evernden Wayfinding around cities can be difficult for many people. This presentation outlines the process of designing and installing tactile street names on traffic signal poles which can be touch-read by people who are blind or have low vision, thereby providing greater independence and dignity. 4.00pm Angleman Syndrome: How can the built environment offer inclusion? Lindsay Perry The paper will discuss how the built environment can be designed to be sympathetic to the inherent needs of individuals with Angelman Syndrome and in turn improve participation in the community for everyone. Designing Streets for all City of Whittlesea speaker TBC The City of Whittlesea set about slowing traffic to help encourage more people to start walking. This required a collaborative approach to plan for the technical and regulatory issues. This presentation outlines the process of working towards a universally designed built environment, for improved health and wellbeing. Day 1: Tuesday 30 August 2016
  • 4. 4.30pm Beyond Ramps and Signs – design for neurodiversity Emily Steel To be truly universal, our designs should accommodate people with sensory sensitivities (e.g. dyslexia, ADHD, dementia, autism, bipolar). This session will explore places, products and communication strategies that present barriers and facilitators of inclusion for a neurodiverse population. Examples of inclusive research and co-design will be outlined. On the Dunny Run: Accessible toilets in Tweed Shire Una Cowdroy Suzi Hudson Partnerships of shared knowledge and experience improve project outcomes and influence change in thinking and practice. This presentation will show how input from community members highlighted systemic issues with toilet design as well as other barriers. The project influenced all levels of Council and led to changes in protocols and processes. 5:00pm Close Day 1: Tuesday 30 August 2016
  • 5. 8:45am Welcome: The Hon. John Ajaka, Minister for Ageing, Minister for Disability Services, Minister for Multiculturalism MC: Nick Rushworth, Executive Officer, Brain Injury Australia 9:00am Communicating Universal Design Across Virtual and Built Environments Keynote Address: Professor Gerard Goggin, Media and Communications, The University of Sydney 9:40am Universal Support for Universal Design Keynote Address: The Honourable Kelly Vincent, MLC (South Australia) 10:30am BREAK POLICY INCLUSION BY SPECIALISED DESIGN 11:00am Universal Design: not just another name for access Joe Manton The difference between access compliance, which is about disability access and universal design, which supports usability for everyone is not well understood and is undermining a movement forward in inclusive design. This paper argues that UD is the way forward and minimum compliance the way of the past. Summer Foundation’s inclusive model of housing Dr Di Winkler Summer Foundation has developed an innovative model of housing and support for people with significant disabilities which demonstrates that good quality housing that is accessible and centrally located, improves quality of life and social inclusion. The aim of these demonstration projects is to influence policy and create systemic change. 11:30am Moving from the margins: Embedding inclusive thinking in design education Nick Loder and Dr Lisa Stafford This presentation will discusses to what extent student’s attitudes and awareness towards designing for diversity alter or increase from their learning about social- spatial justice and inclusive design pedagogy, and asks what value does awareness-raising education have on student’s learning about designing for diversity. 7 Senses: Creating long term vision through short term interventions Tobias Volbert The 7 Senses approach to outdoor spaces focuses on the design needs of people who experience neurological, intellectual and mental health disability. It is a simple yet versatile framework for improving sensory engagement with outdoor environments. The whole of community benefits when everyone being able to participate more fully. Day 2: Wednesday 31 August 2016
  • 6. 12.00pm Moving beyond access: Translations from Policy to practices in interior and architectural design Janice Rieger Through a series of case studies at various museums in Europe and Canada, this paper critiques the relationship between policy and actual spaces. The research revealed how disability and diversity are constructed and produced in design. This presentation challenges design educators and practitioners to reflect on how diversity is translated from policy to practice. Age’n’Dem Friendly Streetscapes Guy Luscombe With around 95% of older people opting to live at home as they age and some 70% of people with dementia staying in their home environments, more needs to be done to enable aged and dementia (what we might call‘Age’n’Dem’) friendly communities. The evidence supporting the benefits of walking for Age’n’Dem people is widespread and seemingly incontrovertible but how do Government and policy makers use this information to practical benefit in the community? 12:30pm LUNCH  FUNCTION AND AESTHETICS EMERGENCY EVACUATIONS 1:30pm Aesthetics, Design & Disability – towards a framework for collaborative design of assistive technology Cobie Moore The design of assistive devices focuses on function and ignores aesthetics with little regard for the impact this has on the users. An alternative design structure involving the cooperation between individuals with disabilities, medical professionals, and industry professionals is proposed. Should we do more in our Fire Engineering assessments to address emergency evacuation Eliot Reeves The Building Code is inadequate in its provision for safely evacuating older people and people with disability. This paper provides a comparison between the case for current alternative solutions and the case against doing enough, and outlines a way forward into the future. www.universaldesignconference.com.au Day 2: Wednesday 31 August 2016
  • 7. Clothing and universal design Dianne Hodge Clothes not only give protection against the elements, but also communicate our social and cultural identity. Mass market production techniques ignore bodily diversity and needs to be turned on its head. This presentation explores and illustrates a new way of thinking about clothing design for improving quality of life. Universal Design meets the Exit Sign Lee Wilson Effective exit signage is essential in emergency evacuation situations. But not all exits are suitable for people with disability and how do you know which are? In Australia the current approach is limited and people can experience confusion and delays. This presentation will discuss the issues and signage solutions. 2:30pm BREAK 3:00pm Panel Session Topic: The Economics of Inclusion The Hon Kelly Vincent, Sally Coddington, Ro Coroneos and Paul Nunnari Too often inclusion is assumed to be costly and an additional expense. But what is the cost of not being inclusive? Our speakers will dispel the myths and show how inclusion improves the bottom line. 3:50pm Q&A Session chaired by Nick Rushworth 4:30pm Close
