Pioneering research exploring how toilets function as socio-cultural spaces

The project considers how provision of safe, accessible toilets enable or restrict wider access to space and community, and broadens and deepens our understanding of access and accessibility to include gendered and queer perspectives on what an accessible toilet should look like.

Since its inception, the work has branched out in exciting new and cross-disciplinary directions, including Arts, Architecture, Activism and Access: Taking Around the Toilet to New Spaces
