Project: Inaccessible Spaces at Georgetown University

In the next four months, I will be embarking on a project I alluded to several months ago. I've never been trained formally in photography, but I will be taking a series of photographs (with descriptions, naturally) of inaccessible spaces at Georgetown University. The photographs will be shared (and updated) on a dedicated page when the project is sufficiently underway. 

I am exploring spaces that are inaccessible for any disability-related reason. Some examples might include the placement or omission of Brailled signs, the omission or dysfunction of automatic door opening buttons, or flickering lights that might induce seizures in people with photosensitive epilepsy. 

Any space on the campus (or on the Law Center campus) is fair game.

I already know of several specific locations, but I welcome suggestions.

If you know the campus or have been by for any reason, please feel free to suggest spaces either in the comments or by email at lydia@autistichoya.com.

  1. This should be a good eye opener! Inspires me to do something on similar lines in India.


Hi! Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me. I manually approve comments, so sometimes it takes a few weeks, months, or even years to find and approve comments. This delay is normal. (Note that I also don't publish every comment, since this is my personal blog.) Unfortunately, anonymous commenting isn't available anymore since it resulted in over one million spam comments in a short period.
