Location: Room 55, Clore Study Area, British Galleries Level 2
Digital Futures is an open platform for displaying and discussing work by researchers, artists, designers, companies and other professionals working with art, technology, design, science and beyond. It is also a networking event, bringing together people from different backgrounds and disciplines with a view to generating future collaborations.
As part of the collaborative spirit between the V&A’s Digital Futures projects and The Invisible Labs we bring ‘Health Re-envisioned’, an event that has been long in the making. With our combined curiosities of digital interventions and social impact on the future, we are bringing together makers, creatives, scientists and medical professionals on one stage to discuss the future of healthcare, social welfare, the role of technology in aiding chronic conditions etc.
The Invisible Labs is a social innovation project aimed at creating solutions for those living with invisible, chronic conditions with a primary focus on Autoimmune Diseases. Since it’s inception in 2014, we have shared stories by people from around the world as Chronically Driven on living well because of your condition instead of despite of as well as our ongoing attempts at redefining health and healthcare using data with The Invisible Health Data Project.
