Dec 15. Not another Christmas movie

Garland with bulbs, lights and bells

IT Innovation Challenges advent calendar 2019

Oxford is beautiful and quaint, but have you ever thought about what the historic features, narrow pavements and cobbled streets mean for a wheelchair user? The Oxford Accessibility Project offers you the opportunity to see Oxford from a different angle by following A Day in the Life of a Wheelchair User.

We challenged a non-wheelchair user to get around Oxford in a wheelchair for the day. Let’s see how they did!

The short film was created by the team behind the Oxford Accessibility Project, a student-led initiative creating a free, online guide with college accessibility information. An audio described version as well as a longer version can also be found through the project’s YouTube channel.

 

The Oxford Accessibility Project is supported by the IT Innovation Challenges (student call). It is working with the University of Oxford and the Conference of Colleges to create a comprehensive accessibility resource for Oxford’s colleges and permanent private halls.
