StopGap: The Community Ramp Project

“Physical barriers in our built environment prevent many of us from enjoying some of the amazing buildings and spaces that our cities and communities have to offer. Our first project that we have embarked upon is called The Community Ramp Project. With material donations from community hardware stores and volunteer labour from inspired community members businesses with single stepped storefronts are invited to participate and have a custom ramp made at no cost. The brightly coloured ramps do not present a perfect solution to the problem however they create curiosity and get people talking about this huge design issue. The project has introduced many to the human right to equal access and has broadened the conversation on this topic.”
