Event description

Description

Join us at The Lighthouse, Scotland's Centre for Design and Architecture on Thursday 3rd November, from 9.15am - 4.30pm for a programme of talks and workshops to accompany the “Kitchenism” exhibition of prototype furniture designed by Simon Whatley - the centrepiece of which is a new kitchen-dining that will be the hub for social interaction table at the Maggie’s Centre in Edinburgh.


This unique event is designed as an opportunity for an exciting and diverse list of contributors to reveal how their fields of interest intersect, initiating a conversation that allows for the examination of the project’s themes in greater depth. Talks will be interspersed with Tai Chi taster sessions, mindfullness experiences, creative writing tasks and group discussion.

Speakers will include:

Laura Kinnaird - Reiach and Hall architects

Lesley Howells - Maggie's Dundee

Karen Laing - Landscape Designer & Gardener

Angus Ross - Furniture Designer and Maker

Terry Durkin - Direct experience of Maggie's Centres

Toby Patterson - Artist "Thresholds"

Jan-bert van den Brug - Artlink Edinburgh

Presentations and activities shall be interwoven to promote discussion around the ideas and themes underpinning the project. Attendees are encouraged to fully engage with the activities; entering into dialogue with speakers and sharing their own experiences and ideas. We hope to create an environment that encourages curiosity, exploration, discussion and experimentation.

Targeted primarily at those connected to partner organisations and architects, health and care professionals, cancer patients and survivors, their carers, volunteers, therapeutic gardeners, designers, artisan makers, academics and students.
