She will also delve into the nuances of Inclusive Design within the realm of cultural heritage, with a focused lens on sensory processing and neurodiversity. Drawing upon a rich array of interdisciplinary research and practical applications, this session aims to equip organizations with the knowledge and tools necessary to reimagine their spaces, exhibitions, and programs through an inclusive lens.
