Event description
Dying.dialogues is a symposium on death, dying, and design and is part of the Dying. event series running in conjunction with DesignTO

About this Event

Dying.dialogues invites participants to share and reflect on design practice as it relates to the process of moving towards death and through grief - whether these be speculative exploratory works, community engagements, or interventions for specific groups or circumstances. 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 fragility, death, dying, loss, grief, and design.

The symposium will open with a keynote speaker on Friday, January 29th, 2021.

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 third 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.

This year we are inviting contributions on fragility, death, dying, loss, and grief, under the following themes:

  • Design practice: communication materials, products, services, spaces for fragility, death, dying, loss, and grief
  • Healthcare practice and research: palliative care, MAID, hospice, grief, supportive and non-pharmacological care
  • Design research: knowledge creation, knowledge mobilization, 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 inclusivity.

Formats: We are open to multiple formats, examples include: talks, panels, workshops, posters, immersive arts and music, installations/interactive exhibits

If you are interested in submitting to speak at dying.dialogues please follow this link. Submissions are open until October 30th

The tentative date for the symposium is Saturday, January 30, 2021, from 8 am-5 pm (or distributed over several days and times if virtual). If permitted by pandemic protocols, the symposium will be held in downtown Toronto. We will plan for virtual as well as in person, with an option to attend virtually if desired. We reserve the right to modify dates, times, or delivery methods as required.
