Join us for Austin Design Week 2019 as we welcome our storytellers and allow them to share how inclusive, accessible design has created a positive impact on their day to day lives.

In the spirit of starting open and impactful conversations on the subject, attendees are also invited to participate in a Q&A session with our storytellers and experts.

Before, after, and during the intermission of storytelling, attendees can interact with an Empathy Lab created in collaboration with our storytellers. This Empathy Lab will allow guests the opportunity to experience better the assistive technologies, innovative self-solutions, and unique workstreams leveraged by our storytellers firsthand.

Most importantly, we hope the evening’s stories, discussions, and interactions inspire the forging of new paths and ideas so that the future of tech is available to all.

Austin Design Week is an annual event for the community to propose and showcase the best in visual, interactive, web and mobile, product, industrial, architectural, fashion, and civic design. From the spaces we’re inspired by, to the images that leap from the page, the products we use daily, and the way we interact with them, Austin is pushing the boundaries of design. Explore the cutting edge work being done through some of the city’s most innovative creators.

Austin Design Week is committed to a harassment-free event experience for everyone. Our Code of Conduct can be found here. We are also committed to creating an inclusive, accessible space. If you need accommodations, you can let us know in the registration form or by emailing [masked].
