Art Project of World Enabled with Spectral Q

About this project:

High level representatives, academics, students and participants at the UN Habitat III Conference will join to create a large-scale art project with hundreds of participants. Together, we will create a defining image of the Habitat III conference: an aerial image of hundreds of people with and without disabilities coming together to form an innovative image to be released to international press and shared through social media channels.

The Global Network on Disability Inclusive and Accessible Urban Development (DIAUD) is a multistakeholder network supported by IDPP's Disability Inclusive Development Policy Collaboratory. The Network has successfully enabled concerted disability-inclusive efforts to Habitat III. It aims to build and enhance networking among persons with disabilities and disability rights advocates; policymakers and government officials; urban development professionals; academia; foundations; the private sector; and development cooperation partners.

John Quigley is an internationally known Artist, Producer, and Activist. Mr. Quigley founded Spectral Q to produce a unique mix of human installation and aerial photography that brings together communities to create large-scale messages for the common good.  

Support for this project is provided by Ford Foundation and World Enabled’s Inclusive Cities Lab.
