'Skin: the ultimate interface'

Event Details

22nd April, 2016
11.00am - 6.00pm
RHS East London College of Fashion 20 John Prince's Street W1G 0BJ

Initiated by Community Dermatology Task Force of the International Society of Dermatology

Hosted by the Well-being Research Hub at London College of Fashion

This symposium aims to challenge our thinking about the skin and the part it plays in determining body image, by asking a range of questions never before considered in a single event.

What is the role of skin in an evolutionary context? How does today’s environment affect it? What is the experience of survival with a replaced but imperfect skin? How can design assist reconstructive surgery?
SKIN: the ultimate interface will bring together dermatological, surgical and nursing specialists, artists, scientists, designers and patients to present and discuss different perspectives on skin. This unique event promises to be both moving and thought provoking. Above all, it aims to foster new interdisciplinary collaborations that are essential in our pursuit of living better lives.

The day will include lunch and will be followed by a drinks reception.
