Events & Activities

As we are hosting more online activities than ever before, we have developed an online code of conduct and distress protocol for our events. Please find it HERE (the online code of conduct is consistent across our events, but some of the links provided may be revised depending upon the nature of the event and the potential support required).

UKRI Project

  • Workshops. This project will involve regular workshops, with details to be announced here in due course. In 2020-21 they will focus on creative research methods (see below for details of past workshops). In 2022-23 we expect to focus these workshops on developing a draft hospital building note on the senses, to discuss at the conference.
  • Exhibition & conference, 2023/24. The research will feed into an exhibition at Southmead and Great Ormond Street Hospitals as well as a design & healthcare conference in 2023 or 2024. Details will be announced here in due course.
  • Papers and presentations. The project team was planning to present at the following events in 2020, which will now be rescheduled to 2021 due to Covid-19 disruption:’New Narratives’, Arts University Bournemouth, 24 March 2020
