We are a friendly community that shares an interest in user centred design and related disciplines. Through talks and social events, our aim is to encourage sharing of experience and provide opportunities for learning and professional growth for practitioners as well as those interested in the field.
We're super pleased to reschedule last October cancelled event!

- Tips to design with Visual impairment in mind
- Interactive design session to solve real world issues
We'll gather at 6.30, for a start at 7pm
