‘Dying.dialogues’ invites participants to share and reflect on design practice as it relates to the process of moving towards death and through grief – whether these be speculative exploratory works, community engagements, or interventions for specific groups or circumstances. The symposium will engage across multiple domains, including – designers, artists, scholars, health care practitioners, and the wider public. These dialogues are an opportunity to engage with diverse perspectives and participate in open conversations about fragility, death, dying, loss, grief, and design.
This year Dying.dialogues will take place over 2 days. The event will begin on Fri, Jan 29 from 11:30am-3pm and continue on Sat, Jan 30 from 11:45am-4:00pm.
