'Art, Architecture and Healthcare – Greenock Health & Care Centre'
This joint presentation by artist Stephen Hurrel (Hurrel Visual Arts) and Jackie Sands (NHS Public Health Improvement Senior: Arts & Health) will focus on a recent public art project for the new Greenock Health and Care Centre, from 2015 to 2021, where Stephen was the Lead Artist/Curator/Planner and Jackie was specialist advisor supporting the client and the lead artist. Stephen and Jackie will talk about the collaborative working process; from the importance of early planning and project-management, developing briefs and commissioning artists, to the successful integration of art with architecture through design, colour, materials and contemporary artworks that resonate a sense of place.

'A Toolkit for Implementing Ageing and Dementia Design Principles'
The EADDAT is a valuable resource for influencers of the built environment, health and social care practitioners and individuals supporting someone living with dementia. It forms part of a suite of resources produced by DSDC and informed by the most recent research in the field of dementia design for the purposes of facilitating research translation through knowledge exchange and impact.
The tool can be used for existing, new-build and refurbishment projects across a range of settings; including within the home, cafes, restaurants, care homes, day care centres, hospitals and faith buildings.
This presentation sets out the evidence which underpins this new tool and provides an explanation of how to use and access it.
