About the project

Design for All informs and educates on the topic of universal design and is closely connected to the Zlin Design Week festival. It deals with accessibility and how to design products and services for the widest possible audience, including those with some kind of disability (e.g., physical or mental, temporary or permanent, cultural).

The Universal design project – Exploring the potential and engagement of the new generation in the creative industries is funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA Grants. The main organizer is the Faculty of Multimedia Communications of Tomas Bata University in Zlín.
