These Ci-fi Think -Tanks aim to provide an opportunity for participants to meet and network with other professionals – it is through this collaboration of disciplines and domains that we hope to encourage insights and innovations to emerge.

Wac Interactive will host the first in what will be a series of Creative Interaction For Inclusion (CiFi) Think-Tank meetings, which will bring together a range of professionals who are at the cutting edge of technology innovation and those experienced working in disability issues from a social model perspective. The aim of the Think Tanks is create a platform for participants to share their knowledge and ideas, each bringing their own expertise to the table to steer the direction of Wac Arts Interactive – a three year BBC Children in Need funded project that aims to work with young people (12-18) across the UK with mild/moderate disabilities at risk of isolation, using creative technology to enhance communication and independence skills whilst enabling opportunities to form friendships and have fun. The Think-Tank meeting will provide a platform for professionals to contribute and debate on current technological developments and innovation.

How can we integrate the arts and technology to engage people affected by disability?
How can we use technology and innovation to support those working with people affected by disability?
How can these be made more accessible and used creatively by young people affected by disability?
What are the potential developments for Wac Interactive over the next three years?
With such rapid advancements in technology, what does the future hold and how will we change and adapt to this? – how can we position disability issues at the forefront of these discussions?
