#PurpleLightUp' is a global movement designed to draw attention to the economic empowerment of disabled people. Across business and government alike, it has become synonymous with International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) held annually on 3rd December.
#PurpleLightUp was conceived by PurpleSpace Founder Kate Nash OBE, and calls on disabled employees, staff networks/resource groups and allies to drive this social change movement within their own organisations.
Over the past couple of years, business buildings across the world go purple as a demonstration of their commitment to employing people with disabilities.
Sacha Abizadeh of WSP created a facade lighting scheme to support the cause with HSBC in Birmingham.
Tryka RGBW BOA LED linear strips were chosen to deliver the project on time.
