PRESENTING AT THE HSRU. University of Aberdeen, Scotland.

In March 2012 Hazel White and I presented at the Health Services Research Unit (University of Aberdeen). The event was part of a series of workshops organised by the HSRU, focussed on the role of arts in the health sector. It was a great challenging experience to communicate my ideas to a group of people that belongs to a completely different field. I believe that allowing dialog between different disciplines might highly contribute to bring different perspectives on how we look at what we do. I also believe that a designers have “to learn how to speak” the language of other fields and that is the only way to understand each other and to make things happen.
