Lab4Living is celebrating its ten year anniversary in 2017 with a series of events including an exhibition at Sheffield Hallam University’s Head Post Office building as a showcase of research and a tenth-anniversary book to go alongside it. The exhibition will run from 25 April to 06 May and copies of the book are available throughout. Let us know what you think about the Lab4Living at 10 exhibition on social media using the hashtag #L4L10.

Lab4Living is a trans-disciplinary research group at Sheffield Hallam University based on a collaborative community of researchers in design, healthcare and creative practice. Lab4Living was established ten years ago and since that time it has made a significant contribution to the emerging academic field of design and health. Its work has spanned more than 100 research projects and has included collaborations with colleagues in over 80 academic, hospital and community organisations in over fifteen countries.

This exhibition offers a chance to showcase some of the Lab4Living’s achievements over the last decade with an opportunity to pause, reflect and consider the next chapter of research. These events will feed into, and are very much part of, the wider creative practice and healthcare theme within the Art and Design Research Centre.
