How have remote work, collaboration, or participation shaped your world as a disabled person?
What have been the consequences when your remote access was denied?
How were you using remote access even before the pandemic?
Please help us document your story!
The Critical Design Lab seeks participants in the creation of a free, public digital archive documenting disabled peoples’ uses of technology before, during, and after the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Remote Access Archive will include oral histories, recordings, and digital materials for use by historians and disability studies scholars.
We are looking for stories, materials, photos, documents, newsletters, screenshots, and anything else that can help us document the significance and challenges of remote participation in disability communities.
We also want to know more about what makes remote access challenging or inaccessible.

About Critical Design Lab
The Critical Design Lab has various diverse projects and a podcast. It “is a multi-disciplinary arts and design collaborative centered in disability culture and crip technoscience. Our work pivots around the concept of access: access is our ethic, our creative content, and our methodology. We use digital media and social practice to craft replicable protocols that treat accessibility as research-creation, an aesthetic world-building practice, and an invitation to assemble community.”
