Design and the Ageing Brain Symposium: Auckland, New Zealand

Paul Chamberlain and Claire Craig delivered two keynote presentations to over 100 delegates at the Ageing Brain Symposium, Auckland, New Zealand in March 2017. The Symposium was organised by the Design for Health and Wellbeing Lab, Auckland University of Technology and was funded by Brain Research New Zealand. It brought together designers, design researchers, clinicians and health researchers to explore the role that design can play in promoting quality of life for people with dementia and their families.

Virginia Heath joined Paul and Claire later in the day. Together they facilitated a workshop that looked at the role of creative practices and methods in health research. Virginia was invited to show her film from Scotland with Love in the context of interventions to promote wellbeing for people with dementia.
