ISAM DUNDEE 2015
The International Society of Addiction Medicine(ISAM) will hold their annual conference in Dundee, Scotland, in October 2015. DJCAD was invited to facilitate an art exhibition of work that brings the local community and the scientific conference together.This will enhance the scientific programme of the conference and inspire new dialogue through this partnership.
Through art and design, DJCAD has supported a series of projects that observe and examine the issue of substance misuse. Through projects that promote an awareness of substance misuse to various target audiences, we have developed relationships with local communities and organisations, where art and design has used narratives to inform visual outputs. The visual outputs address the Stigma associated with substance misuse and endeavour to promote meaningful messages that can begin to change society’s perception of individuals living with the problem. DJCAD have also been working with Education Scotland to develop a set of ‘toolkits’ aimed at either schoolchildren or students, helping them to understand some of the issues surrounding substance use and misuse.
THE CREATIVE COOKBOOK
A Communication Design level 2 interdisciplinary student project ‘The Living Field’ asked students to submit a recipe page towards the production of a Student Cookbook, aimed at students beginning life at University away from home. A recipe was donated by actor Brian Cox and the resulting Creative Cookbooks were sold for £5 with all proceeds being donated to Signpost International, a local charity working with underprivileged communities in Africa and Asia, helping them to produce their own food, ensuring the sustainability of their families and surrounding communities.
This project allowed students to realise the impact their design can have on a global platform, despite it targeting a local audience.
