DEEP 2016: Designing Enabling Economies and Policies

We’re getting ready for DEEP 2016!  Be sure to mark your calendar:

Oct. 13-14, 2016
OCAD University, 100 McCaul St., Toronto, Ontario, CANADA

This year’s theme is:  “Our Data: Who owns it, who controls it, what can we do with it?”

During 2016 DEEP sessions, participants will explore the personal in the context of global platforms (e.g., airbnb, Shopify, Etsy, UBER and emerging public sector platforms). How do we make sure our unique needs are not lost in large connected systems? How do we protect our private data? How do we tap the diversity of skills and resources available to address gaps and innovate? Can we create a global platform to address accessibility and inclusive design?

Our discussions will focus on 4 areas of application:

  • Models of Innovation that are more Canadian and Inclusive
  • (Re)connecting through Media
  • Smart, Inclusive Mobility and Transportation
  • Creating Inclusive Cities and Living Spaces
