Call for Participation: Dementia Lab

Call for participation: Dementia Lab: the Role of Design Essen Folkwang Germany + LUCA Belgium Essen, Germany

14th and 15th September, 2016

Design educators of all disciplines, design researchers and designers are invited to attend this two-day event on designing together with people with dementia. Design in all of its forms, from graphic and product design to industrial design and interactions, is putting more focus on becoming socially meaningful. One way that design is responding to this is by working with the growing need of the elderly population and specifically those with dementia. Central to this is the question on how to include the person with dementia their family and (in)formal caregivers in the design process. http://www.dementialab.com
