Abstract: This shift to centre does not threaten creativities of professions in service to the built, civic and natural environments. It demands instead a prick to active listening to engage in discussions of access, journey plans, threshold invitations, participants in and users of place and amenity. This sits in direct paradox to being done to, good for, gazed upon, shut out or assisted in.
As a consequence the frames change for all practice when the whole person is the sovereign being in choice and control. This presentation will explore the attitudinal barriers to person-centredness and will give an example of process design for collaboration informed by human rights, and a case study of a commissioned temporary arts and experience space designed for people with disability and others by an artist with disability and its universal success. The call of this paper is that citizens and residents assume and demand their right to choice and control.
