The Binks Hub Human Flourishing Symposium 2023

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesPublic Engagement – Public lecture/debate/seminar


Our mission at the Binks Hub is to co-create research for human flourishing. And as we moved into our second year of work, we were keen to explore further different academic, practice and artistic perspectives on the concept of ‘human flourishing’.
To help us shape our vision of what human flourishing might look like – and how we might get there – on the 6th June 2023, we invited artists, practitioners, community organisations, policy makers and academics into a shared space for a series of lectures, discussions, and creative exercises to examine a number of key questions:
How do different disciplines – both inside and outside academia – understand human flourishing?
What does it mean to promote human flourishing?
What role might research and knowledge exchange have in developing our understanding of and interventions around human flourishing?
