CONFERENCE - Winter 2020. Florida:   Experiential Design – Rethinking relations between people, objects and environments


Florida State University  |  16-17 January 2020  |  Round One Abstracts: 20 June 2019; Round Two: 20 November 2019


The US Department of Arts and Culture argues art has a three-fold role to play in nurturing a culture of health: prevention, advocacy and treatment. The Arts Council of England has announced new research funding for artists engaged with issues of public health and wellbeing. The Industrial Designers Society of America sees product design in the light of inclusivity as a basis of good practice.

Addressing these links between the arts and design and issues of health and wellbeing this conference is premised on the belief that artists and designers need to more fully understand the insights of psychologists and health professionals if they are to produce works of art or design that are to effectively contribute to a better environment in which we live.

On that basis it brings together people from this diverse range of fields into open dialogue:

Art   |    Architectures   |   Landscape Design   |  Universal Design   |   Health   |   Psychology   |   Occupational Therapy  |  Education
