Is anyone else noticing a trend to ‘mainstream’ access and inclusion? The argument goes something like “we should be increasing access and inclusion for everyone”. Hard to disagree with that right? A recent example is adding general walkability to the scope of an advisory group on access and inclusion. Not even a blush at the term walkability. If places become inclusive and accessible when we design them for ‘everyone’, we wouldn’t need to have an advisory group in the first place. ‘Everyone’ is code for the dominant culture. One of the reasons why we put disability access and inclusion front and centre is because that genuinely does benefit everyone. It doesn’t work the other way around.
