Failing to make it better

Uke 35.

Outi Salonlahti takes part in the seminar Failing to make it better, organized by ROM. The seminar is a day of talks and action exploring how we can design a future with care and inclusion as key values. 

The event focuses on the normative structures at play in civic and cultural life which are built upon established methodologies and traditions. How can we create, encourage and embed a process of meaningful participation that revolves around inclusion and diversity?

The program is planned and organised by ROMs Guest Curator 2023-2024, Aidan Moesby. Contributors are Emma Nilsson, Rector at Bergen School of Architecture; Eva Rowson, Director at Bergen Kjøtt; Outi Salonlahti, Senior Specialist, Accessibility and Communications at Culture for All; Tiril Hasseknippe, artist.

Outi Salonlahti works at Culture for All (Finland) for example with communications, equity trainings and accessibility surveys. At the moment she also works in a project called Making space for artistry – equity for disabled artists and artists who are Sign Language users.
