DCN Mentoring Residency | Stacey Hunter

Stacey Hunter

Design and personal and social identity

With the suppprt of NHS Lothian's Art & Therapeutic Design programme, the Alt-w LAB is hosting four Ginkgo mentoring residencies this winter. Edinburgh-based design specialist Stacey Hunter is a producer, curator and writer.

Exploring how healthcare environments have implications for patients in terms of their identity and sense of self, Stacey will be thinking about how the depersonalising effect of clinical environments might be positively counteracted.

Starting with the idea of the ‘dressing table’, the residency will consider the accoutrements we surround ourselves with to communicate or sustain our 'best self', using the City of Edinburgh's art collection as a resource and reference point.
