CALL FOR SHORT VIDEOS: Digital Innovations to be Screened at First-Ever Inclusive Africa Conference
If you have a digital product, project or initiative that works, we would like to hear from you. Working together, sharing breakthroughs and learning is the only way we will continue to break down barriers.
Video submissions that cannot be exhibited at the conference are encouraged. Short presentations that showcase products, research systems, prototypes, educational methods, visions of the future, and statements of needs for a user population, product descriptions or demos, reports on ethnographic work, user studies, lab overviews, and more. The videos should share knowledge or educate or raise awareness, and not be a sales pitch.
Irene Mbari-Kirika, inABLE.org Executive Director and Inclusive Africa Conference Show Organizers, states: "There is a huge amount of talent here in Africa and now is the time to showcase it to the world at the Inclusive Africa Conference. What have you been working on that you are most proud of, and how does it have the potential to change a disabled person's life for the better?"
Submission format: Not anonymized, 3-minute video (captioned/described)
