Ann Vanner will give a free talk about how our lives are shaped by our homes
We’ve all heard the saying home is where the heart is but a University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) academic is asking is your home trying to kill you?
Ann Vanner, Senior Lecturer in Architecture and Architectural Technology, will give a free talk about how our lives are shaped and impacted by the places we call home and the simple changes we can make for the better.
She will explore how these spaces affect our thoughts, feelings and behaviours and how much of our health and wellbeing depend on our indoor spaces.
The chartered architectural technologist will go on an exploration through a typical home and will give a new view of some of the most familiar spaces. In addition, she will also arm you with some simple and thoughtful interventions to change and adapt these spaces so you and your family can not only survive but thrive.
"I believe we all have the ability to create the spaces we need and want and I hope my talk will give people the inspiration to make those changes"— Ann Vanner, Senior Lecturer in Architecture and Architectural Technology
Ann said: “We spend a lot of time in our homes and in recent years Covid-19 has forced us all to spend even more time indoors. I believe we all have the ability to create the spaces we need and want and I hope my talk will give people the inspiration to make those changes.”
This talk, which is the second in UCLan’s Public Lecture Theatre, is taking place between 6.00pm and 7.00pm on Thursday 9 June. People can attend in person at UCLan’s Mitchell and Kenyon Cinema, on the Preston Campus, or online.
