Abstract

The academic disciplines and practices of design and health currently operate within different spaces and draw on disparate paradigms relating to how knowledge is created and disseminated (Reay et al 2017). Whilst the value of bringing design and health together is increasingly being recognised the reality is that this can be fraught with complexity (Harris and Lyon, 2014). Within design for instance, disruption and risk are regarded as creative catalysts, which can lead to the generation of new insights. Within healthcare risk is frequently seen as a negative force and to be avoided at all costs. This interactive workshop based around a series of crafted challenges offers participants the opportunity to explore these tensions and to work together to identify different routes and ways forwards.
