‘Dying.dialogues’ is a mini-symposium on design for end of life running in conjunction with DesignTO, with collaborators from the Health Design Studio at OCADU and Taboo Health. ‘Dying.dialogues’ invites participants to share and reflect on design practice as it relates to the process of end of life. 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 death, dying and design.
- Design practice: communication materials, products, services, spaces for fragility, death, dying, loss, and grief;
- Community/patient focused practice and research: palliative care, MAID, hospice, grief, supportive and non-pharmacological care;
- Design research: knowledge creation, knowledge mobilisation, public engagement, public art on fragility, death, dying, loss, grief,
- Designing for loss and grief more broadly: e.g. climate change, Black Lives Matter, mass acts of violence, COVID-19
We particularly invite works within these themes that address issues of equity, diversity, and inclusion.
