Dying.dialogues
Jan 29 2022
event: talk in-person

‘Dying.dialogues’ invites participants to share and reflect on design practice as it relates to death and grief—whether these be speculative exploratory works, community engagements, or interventions for specific groups or circumstances. The symposium is a venue for dialogue across multiple stakeholders, 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.

‘Dying.dialogues’ is chaired by Dr. Kate Sellen, Health Design Studio at OCAD U and acknowledges Karen Oikonen, Kate Sellen and Maria Cheung as Dying.series Creative Directors.

Over the past two years, the Dying.series has attracted over 5000 attendees, 26 speakers, including 4 opening and keynote speakers in the disciplines of design and healthcare and 29 exhibiting artists and designers. In its fourth year, Dying. will continue to offer an opportunity to creatively engage in conversation about fragility, death, dying, loss, grief through the lens of art and design.
