The Arts and Sciences department at UCL are excited to invite you to our launch event!
Located at the intersection of the arts, humanities and sciences our ‘Eclectic Resilience’ Hub provides a new lens through which to view resilience and wellbeing, through coproduction with students, staff and the wider community, centralising personal experiences.
Working collaboratively with students and colleagues, the event will showcase the projects and related impact, most notably when it comes to developing inclusive and interdisciplinary grounded resources for enhancing wellbeing and EDI practices. Using the umbrella term ‘Eclectic Resilience’, we aim in the medium term to create a hub as a home for our uniquely interdisciplinary research and teaching enhancement projects putting human resilience and wellbeing at the core.
