Bio: Dr. Tara French is Programme Director for Health and Wellbeing at The Glasgow School of Art. As a design psychologist and interdisciplinary researcher, she is an expert in facilitating transdisciplinary collaborations in the context of care and wellbeing. Her work combines multi-method and creative forms of engagement to meaningfully involve diverse groups of stakeholders in the design process, from people with lived experience to government policy makers. Her research focuses on the role of design in enabling a culture of innovation and resilience in complex contexts, with special interests in social care, mental wellbeing and palliative care. Tara is interested in how design can foster spaces for empathic exploration and resilience when exploring ‘taboo’ or sensitive subjects.
