Health | Wellness,
Join us in Edmonton for this unique interdisciplinary symposium in which we will explore how we can engage the health humanities to help us work collaboratively across disciplines and communities, to imagine and design innovative and transformative processes, communications, products, environments, services and experiences that can help to promote our collective health and well-being!This two-day symposium has been organized to explore and discuss perspectives and frameworks being introduced in our “InSight2: Engaging the Health Humanities” international exhibition, May 14th - June 8th. Our “Design, the Health Humanities, and the Community” symposium will bring together scholars, educators, students, researchers, practitioners, and others from design, the health sciences and related areas to participate in a sustained conversation focused on exploring a diversity of interdisciplinary perspectives and design and health humanities practices across the continuum of learning, including interprofessional learning. We have developed a single-track symposium programme, which can be found online at http://www.insight2.healthhumanities.ca. We are delighted to share that Jorge Frascara & Guille Noël (Universidad del las Americas Puebla, Mexico) and Alan Bleakley (Peninsula Medical School, UK) have agreed to be our keynote speakers.Following the opening reception that we have organized for the “InSight2” exhibition on May 23rd (from 7 pm – 10 pm) at the FAB Gallery (UAlberta – free, open to all!), the “Design, the Health Humanities, and the Community” symposium will begin on May 24th at 8:00 am with registration, and an opening panel and paper sessions. We are inviting registrations from those who may simply be interested in attending the symposium, and also welcome those who would like to participate by also presenting a poster display of their work in this area. To submit a poster, please send an abstract no longer than 150 words (not counting title, authors and affiliations). Abstracts should contextualize the project described in relation to design, the health humanities, and community.
