Our presentation at DIWW, “Dancing with [co] Design”, will focus on the potential of camera and projection technologies to extend the typical, sometimes limited, range of movements among people with profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD) in their day service settings. We will describe our co-creation methods for Somability, and how we are now visualising and generating graphical representations of body movement in real time.
The event takes place at the iconic Wales Millennium Centre, Weston Studio. To enrich the experience of digital innovation, we have invited our partners in Somability to offer a preview of work in progress. This short performance with the True Colours dance group, aims to reveal the poignancy and sensitivity of the relationship between carers and service users with profound disabilities, and to invite the audience to reflect on their own experience of participation.
Dancing with [co] Design will be introduced by Marek and Wendy. The Somability sequence will be performed by True Colours, co-ordinated by Zoe Martin and Linzi Robinson from Artis Community with service users from Rhondda Cynon Taf Skills for Independence.
