A new PhD course at AAU Create, titled “Integrating design, mindfulness practices and arts-based research to foster pathways towards sustainable futures”.

This PhD course originates at the intersection of several disciplines and is targeted towards PhD students in design, architecture, planning, arts, aesthetics, culture studies, psychology, sustainability studies, and related research areas interested in exploring the integration of design methods with arts-based practices and mindfulness practices for sustainability.

Within this course, we will journey through two experimental days containing moments of arts-based co-creation, sound-driven future visioning, yoga and breathing sessions to explore how these practices can be weaved into traditional design methods and frameworks to support sustainable transformation.
