Digital Inclusion

Digitalization makes life easier. For some of us. For others, it means facing barriers in everyday life, barriers that those who fit into the norm don’t even think about.

This is the theme of the photo exhibition Digital Inclusion. It is created by Senter for likestilling, and I have taken the photos.

Seven individuals share their experiences of encountering digital barriers or helping others overcome them, and share their visions for breaking down these barriers so that everyone in society can participate on equal terms.

One in five people in Norway experiences barriers that can lead to digital exclusion. Nearly a million people. In Sweden the Internet Foundation estimates that 6% of the population, around 625,000 people, lives in digital exclusion.

The exhibition will be on display in February and March at @krsbib in Kristiansand, Norway.
