The OPULENT MOBILITY Project
The Opulent Mobility project is a groundbreaking collaborative effort to re-imagine mobility, disability and access. Wheelchairs, walkers, prosthetic limbs, crutches and other adaptive technology devices are part of our lives, but they’ve been left in the dust when it comes to custom design innovation and personalization. There are hundreds of thousands of designs for glasses, chairs and technology of other kinds. Why not adaptive technology?
There are 4 ways for the community to get involved:
1. Submissions are now open for the 2020 exhibit at UCPLA's Washington Reid Gallery. Please share your artwork that re-imagines disability as opulent and powerful.
Deadline for submissions is June 30th at 5 PM PST.
2. Invite Opulent Mobility over: curator, artist and exhibit creator A. Laura Brody will share the work, explain the exhibit and answer your questions.
3. Get together to re-imagine mobility: host a DIY assistive technology workshop at your space. Bring in old walkers, crutches, wrist braces, and wheelchairs and A. Laura Brody will help you re-make them.
4. Build your own Opulent Mobility exhibit: guidelines for mounting a show are posted on the Opulent Mobility website.
