HOME Symposium: Healthy Living

  • Dornsife Center for Neighborhood Partnerships 3509 Spring Garden Street Philadelphia (map)

Substandard housing and housing insecurity cause great stress in the urban environment. Integral Living Research is a novel and collaborative design research group that has developed eight principles for healthy living environments: Privacy, Security, Green Exposure, Food Access, Technology, Health, Water + Mold Reduction, Creativity + Self-Efficacy. The goal is to help remove living stress and create tools that can function as a bridge to improved health in dire conditions. 

This Healthy Living Forum aims to capture the essence of a functioning home by giving attendees the opportunity to examine how our spaces affect us. We’ll start with a short lecture by the leader of the Integral Living Group, D.S. Nicholas, followed by flash talks with experts in the areas of health and community. The following interactive session will draw out how creative practice can serve our living spaces, mapping pathways relevant to our daily routines and generate ideas for improvement.

This event is the second in a series of three public talks + guided writing workshops. (Breakfast + coffee provided.) Seating is limited. Free, registration required on Eventbrite.
