Chris Alexander is a Designer, Researcher, Academic and Maker. When he is not lecturing in design based subjects you might find him knee deep in design based research books and journals or in his man-cave (studio) either designing, sculpting, modelling, moulding, casting, painting, 3d printing or laser cutting something odd under the guise of Creo Design. @creodesign
Kat Kjellström Corbet is a visiting researcher at the University of Life, truthsayer and clutter clearer. Kat conducts her life as one big experiment. She constantly monitors her own emotions, thoughts and behaviour in the hope of detecting any potential causality between these variables and her actual lived experiences. Having identified an area of her life which clearly needs tweaking, she’ll consciously challenge herself to transform her least appealing habits (such as ignoring her overflowing e-mail inbox) into more life-affirming behavioural choices (e.g. deleting the entire contents of her inbox unread and then treating herself to a takeaway flat white and some cake). She delights in sharing her successes and failures with anyone who’s willing to listen.

Kelly Marr will give an insight into her experience in learning about Dundee’s discoveries as part of a public art project. As an Australian who fell in love with this city 20 years ago, Kelly has found that the more she has learned about Dundee’s history the more curious she has become. Kelly has visited primary schools all over the city and the reactions from the children when she talks about Dundee’s Discoveries have been some of the most satisfying experiences of her life.
