Lab4Living: Intersections of Practice

During this one day symposium national and international experts explore the intersections of practice between design and health. Participants attending the symposium will have the opportunity to listen and engage with a series of keynote presentations by researchers in health, design, film and fine art. We will consider, discuss and debate the opportunities, challenges and possibilities that design and creative practice bring in the context of health and wellbeing and consider where we might focus future thinking.

In the afternoon a series of workshops will provide the space for a further exploration of themes including the intersection of design, co-design, co-production and creative practice in knowledge mobilisation.

Registration by Eventbrite is essential. Currently there are no further spaces available, but there is the option to join a waiting list. For further information about the event please contact Julie Roe.
