Sports & leisure facilities can be the heart of a community. Creating inclusive facilities helps break down social barriers and can sometimes have a life-changing impact on the individual or the many.
IAKS (International Association for Sports and Leisure Facilities) would like to welcome you to an afternoon panel discussion where we will hear from designers and facility operators on the different strategies and design decisions it takes to create more inclusive environments.
These decisions require highly specialised knowledge and skill, and sometimes it takes challenging the status quo or putting yourself in another person’s shoes. Thoughtful, considered design can facilitate a more welcoming space, open to everyone regardless of ability, identity, cultural background, or age.
We are delighted to host the event at Coogee Surf Life Saving Club and offer a brief tour at the start. One of the oldest surf lifesaving clubs in Australia, Coogee SLSC reopened in December 2020 after a major upgrade by AJ+C, which earned a Distinction for Accessibility at the 2021 IOC IPC IAKS Architecture Prizes.
Event date: Thursday 28th April 2022
Time: 2.00pm – 4.00pm
Coogee Surf Life Saving Club
Seddon Garden, Cnr Carr and Beach St, Coogee NSW 2034, Australia
