Design for life and for living
Design4Health brings together designers and creative practitioners with researchers, clinicians, policy makers and users to discuss, disseminate and test their approaches and methods. Together we explore creative approaches and perspectives to enhance understanding and experience, and improve efficiency of health and wellbeing services and products.
Our events provide an opportunity to reflect on how the disciplines of Design and Health might develop new ways of thinking and working, and how we might impact positively and sustainably on the social, economic and cultural factors within our communities and beyond.
Lab4Living is an interdisciplinary research initiative established in 2007 at SHU to develop environments and products and to propose creative strategies for future living in which people of all ages and abilities ‘not merely survive’ but are enabled and empowered to live with dignity, independence and fulfillment.
