CRAFT 6 – Disability Accessibility

CRAFT – Community Resilience through Action for Future Transitions

Because our future is in our hands

Disability Accessibility:

Issue 6: September 2014

In this Issue of CRAFT we focus on the issue of ‘Disability Accessibility’ from the perspective of practical hope. We believe that in any forward looking society that seeks to offer all its citizens practical hope DA needs to be both a major policy and practical focus.

Dear CRAFT Adventurer: Please ensure you close each exhibit before opening another.
