Description


We are delighted to announce that our next CHAT will take place at Dublin City Council, Wood Quay, Dublin 8 on Tuesday 25th February at 10.00 am.

This CHAT, we are going to explore how accessible and assistive technology benefits smart cities and smart homes. We will share some of the opportunities and ongoing work/projects that are happening to ensure our growing smart cities and smart homes are accessible for all citizens.

If you are engaged in a project or work in this area and would like to contribute on the day please contact Sarah@freedomtech.ie.

We aim to ensure that the venue in Dublin City Council is fully accessible but we would appreciate if you could let us know if you have any support requirements.

To all of those who are new to CHAT (Community Hub for Accessible Technology) is a community of practice of Assistive Technology Practitioners and Assistive Technology Users that connects the Assistive Technology sector in Ireland like never before.

CHAT is run by FreedomTech, a collaboration between DFI and Enable Ireland. CHAT aims to raise the profile of Assistive Technology in Ireland. CHAT helps to raise awareness about the barriers that currently exist (inaccessibility) and facilitates the sharing of new assistive technology solutions or projects to the community. CHAT is your place to share, listen, learn and build partnerships with others who are interested in supporting independence through the use of technology.

People from a wide variety of backgrounds are involved in CHAT. We are, people with disabilities (expert and non-expert assistive technology users), developers, assistive technology professionals, researchers, suppliers, third level institutions as well as mainstream and disability specialist service providers and professional therapists and other interested parties. CHAT facilitates and creates opportunities amongst members to learn from each other and makes the most of members’ expertise to identify real challenges, gaps and to consider solutions.

We look forward to welcoming you on Tuesday 25th of February at Dublin City Council

Thanks again and don't forget to keep in contact, keep posting and sharing.
