What is Open?

Open is a meetup focussed on making digital services open, accessible, and usable for everyone when and where they are needed. Open advocates design with awareness.

We want Open to challenge what Accessibility has come to mean. We feel that the focus on specific technology or 'the web' is the wrong way to think about it, and in fact we should be concentrating on everything that might affect someone's experience with a service, from culture, disability, context, and everything in between. All in the hopes that we can start to talk about more inclusive and open digital services.
