Join us for Parlour LAB 18. The first session of 2023 looks at relationships between landscape and health, wellbeing and identity with Jacky Bowring and Francis Nona.
What are the relationships between landscapes and wellbeing? How do aesthetics and emotion impact the cultural and environmental management of places and landscapes? If we heal landscapes, can we, by extension, heal people? What of the impact of climate change and disasters in relation to identity and belonging?
Join us for an insightful conversation about the landscape, healing and identity with two exceptional researchers in the field, in a conversation convened by Kali Marnane and Rebecca McLaughlan.
Francis Nona is Indigenous Pathways Leader in the School of Public Health at the University of Queensland. He was involved in development of the UQ Campuses on Countries Design Framework and in the UQ Reconciliation Garden.
Jacky Bowring is Professor of Landscape Architecture at Lincoln University, New Zealand. Her research, design work and criticism explores how ideas of place, memory and emotion enrich our relationship with our landscapes.
