This ongoing project with colleagues at the RMIT School of Design - industrial designers Juan Sanin and Liam Fennessy - is a $46k collaborative research partnership with Bendigo Hospital to develop a sensory trolley for use by Psychiatric Services. The trolley will help clinical staff to conduct mobile multi-sensory experiences to improve the wellbeing of staff and patients within the hospital, and help build skills in patients in their lives outside the hospital setting. The new research partnership builds on the existing 'Design for Wellbeing' project led by DERC's Sarah Pink and School of Design Dean Laurene Vaughan.


commemoration reframed: Anzac day and remembrance day 2018

Using ethnographic, sensory and visual techniques to investigate how people experience two important commemorative days in Australia: Anzac Day (25 April) and Remembrance Day (11 November) this project aims to investigate how people make sense of and perceive national commemorative events. With Danielle Drozdzewski (University of Stockholm) and Emma Waterton (University of Western Sydney), this project is part of a wider international investigation of 11 November 2018 called Commemoration Reframed that Shanti is leading in 2017-2019.  .
