Accessibility & Inclusivity

Accessibility is the quality of being able to be reached or entered, being easy to obtain or use, being easily understood or appreciated. It is achieved through a participatory framework of working with disabled/marginalised people to create access and develop solutions with dignity, agency and creativity. (Thanks to Tilting the Lens for this defintion,)

Inclusivity is the practice or policy of providing equal access to opportunities and resources for people who might otherwise be excluded or marginalised. It is a continuous and evolving practice to put accessibility and inclusivity at the core of an organisation.

Triskel has chosen to approach inclusion and access creatively, through invitation, dialogue, and solutions. We will update this page with accessibility information and solutions regularly.
