‘Designing for the Ageing Brain’ Symposium Auckland, New Zealand – Paul Chamberlain and Claire Craig give keynote speeches
Paul Chamberlain and Claire Craig delivered two keynote presentations to over 100 delegates at the Designing for the Ageing Brain Symposium in Auckland, New Zealand in March 2017. The Symposium was organised by the Design for Health and Wellbeing Lab at Auckland University of Technology and was funded by Brain Research New Zealand. It brought together designers, design researchers, clinicians and health researchers to explore the role that design can play in promoting quality of life for people with dementia and their families.
Professor Virginia Heath joined Paul and Claire later in the day. Together they facilitated a workshop that looked at the role of creative practices and methods in health research. Virginia was invited to show her film From Scotland with Love in the context of interventions to promote wellbeing for people with dementia. Read more about the film here.
