Event Details

This conference offers a unique invitation to engage in cross disciplinary discourse around the role of people, objects and environments and how our individual practices and professions are, in reality, inseparable from each other. It asks how the things and spaces we design and create are experienced and how they impact on people: their potential, learning capacity, wellbeing, social inclusion, desires, actions, behaviors, moods, thinking, and more. This gathering supports the notion that artists and designers need to understand the insights of educators, psychologists, health professionals and diverse user groups to create the products and spaces we will all need in the future.

Keynote Chris Downey. sight-impaired architect serves as the keynote speaker, sharing his thoughts on the importance of the senses to human experience and design Thursday night. Angela Spangler of the International Well Building Institute is the second day keynote speaker who will celebrate the importance of healthy places that support human well-being.
