Dying.dialogues is a mini-symposium on design for end of life

About this Event

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.

The Dying.dialogues mini-symposium will start with a keynote, from Nikki Salkeld and Ashley Rudolph from MOTH, on the evening of January 24, 2020, followed by a day of facilitated dialogues and activities through panel, poster/video/demo sessions, invited and peer reviewed talks on January 25, 2020. During DesignTO there will be a number of events under the Dying. series with an opportunity to visit exhibits across Toronto.

Submit to Dying.dialogues in the form of a 500 word abstract for either a short talk and/or poster/video/demo/exhibit/installation from a broad range of design researchers, practitioners, and teams working on issues surrounding death, dying and end of life. Deadline, November 18.

In 2019, the Dying. series attracted over 3000 attendees, 14 speakers, including keynote Ivor Williams (Helix Centre), and 12 exhibiting artists and designers over the course of the DesignTO festival. In its second year, Dying. will continue to offer the public the opportunity to creatively engage in conversation about death and dying through the lens of art and design.
