About A11y Camp

What is it?

A11y Camp is an annual accessibility professional development event where people can come together, share and learn from each other, geek out, make friends, and add their own knowledge into the mix.

This year, it consists of two days:

  • Day 1 – Workshops: Two half day workshops by experienced professionals sharing their deep insights with the accessibility community.
  • Day 2 – Conference: Keynote talks from industry leaders and shorter talks by our peers in the accessibility community. With lots of opportunities to network during the breaks and at the post event party.

A11y Camp is about creating a digital world with no barriers, and is Australia’s largest event for professionals interested in digital accessibility and inclusive design.

Who runs it?

A11y Camp is run by A11y Bytes, a community of volunteers around Australia focused on raising the profile of digital accessibility and inclusive design.

A11y Camp grew out of a recognised need for an event more intensive and focused than A11y Bytes. Currently, A11y Camp alternates annually between Australia’s two largest cities, Melbourne and Sydney.

Who is it for?

A11y Camp welcomes everyone, from seasoned accessibility professionals to those new to the field. This includes individuals from government departments, agencies, and authorities, and those working independently or within teams in corporate, commercial, or small agency settings.

It’s for those whose job it is to know everything there is to know about digital accessibility right through to those who simply want to get a better understanding of just what accessibility is and how they can help to make it happen.

What can attendees expect?

You can expect to learn from experienced professionals with deep understanding and newer trailblazers with innovative approaches. You’ll get to share your own experiences and learnings with your peers and colleagues in a focused and friendly atmosphere.

They will emerge with a greater understanding of both the principles of accessibility and the techniques to put them into real action.
