It is our pleasure to invite you to once again be a part of our Discotech
event, this time in Paris and under the theme, “Breaking through
the walls of an inaccessible internet”.

On the evening of Sunday 11 November, from 19:30 to 22:00, APC and
Hivos/Digital Defenders Partnership will host Disco-tech 2018, which will
focus on disability and accessibility to the internet. The event will
provide different opportunities to foreground the experiences, realities,
needs and concerns of internet users who are disabled.

As you know, Disco-tech is a learning exchange. It will increase
responsiveness to and awareness of disability and accessibility to the
internet, as well as provide concrete examples of ways in which civil
society can support actions to reduce barriers to accessibility at
different levels.
