A programme of talks and workshops to accompany the “Kitchenism” exhibition of prototype furniture designed by Simon Whatley - the centrepiece 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.
We hope to create an environment that encourages curiosity, exploration, discussion and experimentation.
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.
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.
This event is free but places must be reserved in advance here.
