This co|Create session is prompted by Creativity Works’ continuing work in care home settings. We are currently working in Bristol, Bath and Radstock on the final phase of our Home Service project, embedding creativity into care homes and exploring new ideas and products to empower staff and residents alike. This is a hugely valuable opportunity to learn, be inspired and discuss how you can take your ideas and make them a reality.
Chloe Meineck is a designer, maker, inventor and social entrepreneur based in Bristol and London. Her work sits between the worlds of technology, craft, design and art, and focusses on inclusive design processes in order to develop products with a social purpose.
Stand+Stare work with people from a range of disciplines including technologists, academics, archivists and even cheese-makers . Always seeking to challenge convention and to tell a good story, they create automated experiences, often based on archive material, and immersive performances where audiences feel stimulated by the ideas, but not intimidated by the form. Their work is characterised by a sense of warmth and nostalgia with particular attention given to the design. They make work for theatres, festivals, commercial clients, media agencies, museums, libraries and universities.
The Bristol Approach is a way of working that ensures that new ‘smart city’ technologies address the needs and priorities of the people who will use them, particularly in communities that are in danger of ‘being left behind” or excluded.
