Accessibility and accommodation in events (and media), and a lot of ramblings related to that
This is a part of an ever-updating post, but the first part is alright so I upload it
As a person with an overall privileged condition: healthy body, no allergy (anymore), have my own saving so I can pay something upfront first then being reimbursed, as well having a laidback and nrima (Javanese, lit: accepting, which sometime’s not a good characteristic to have) personality, although I tried to give my suggestion in accessibility and accommodation whenever I can, especially in regards to other people or participants in an event I’m an organiser of, I’ve never really given a thought about this enough about when I’m the one being accommodated for.
After meeting a lot more people in a wider spectrum and having more knowledge and discussions about accessibility and being asked on what kind of accessibility access and accommodation I or people like “me” actually want, I did some hard contemplation and some more reading (read: tabs in high tens). I will give some of my thought and experiences below.
(Making a note for a friend who’s in charge of accessibility and accommodations, hence a few of my notes for her sprinkled around)
Asean Korea: Indonesia’s Month of Festival
August seemed to be the month of festival. There are many festivals held all around Indonesia. Two of them will be discussed in this blog article.
Ky’s Exchange: Pink Ribbon for Pink Day
They said yesterday was Pink Day in South Korea, and students in my campus put these ribbons near the Student Building. Because the day before I didn’t have class, I couldn’t see them putting the ribbon. I wonder what is Pink Day though, not yet asking the significance. Nothing in Wikipedia also.
