Your walls can talk, so what are they saying to your body and mind? Melbourne design, architecture and medicine collide in this exciting event that looks beyond functional approaches to consider health and wellbeing. Join a panel of medical and design experts as they explore the power of design in our devices and living spaces—from homes to workplaces to hospitals and more.
Curated by Jo Simkin, senior curator of human biology and medicine for Museums Victoria, the panel features Leah Heiss, award-winning designer working at the nexus of design, health and technology; Julie Bernhardt, Florey Institute professor, clinician scientist and brain injury recovery expert; and moderator Hope Gates-Scovelle, a doctor specialising in emergency medicine at St Vincent’s Hospital in Melbourne.
