AUB Human

AUB Human connects designers, architects, filmmakers and other creative practitioners who share a desire to bring about positive change for global good.

AUB Human

AUB Human is a space where we celebrate social, ethical and sustainable creative practice.

At AUB, our students and staff are using their skills to engage and address some of the most pressing issues that are facing the human race today. Explore AUB Human to find out some of the ways in which the AUB community is working together to make the world a better place.

AUB Human Book

The AUB Human book is an anthology of selected projects. The book, a personal project and collaboration between Alice Stevens and Natalie Carr, was created during the Covid-19 pandemic whilst the campus was in lockdown. The anthology celebrates some of the AUB Human events, projects and symposia that were undertaken during the 2019-2020 academic year.

AUB Human Scan Me

Scan Me is a collection of social, ethical and sustainable creative practice. Some of our latest stories include how AUB has teamed up with Lush to champion accessibility and packaging sustainability and how our graphic design students have impressed Dyson in the SNTech creative challenge. Find these fascinating stories and more in Scan Me.

AUB Human Research Group

The AUB Human Research Group aims to foster a transdisciplinary community that explores ‘creativity for good’ through theoretical and practice-based research, pedagogical inquiry and activities.

The AUB Human ethos aims to celebrate AUB achievements in areas of social, ethical and sustainable creative practice but the research group, whilst taking a position of optimism, offers a more critical direction to further challenge, question and innovate in making a positive difference to people and planet. The group also provides mentoring and support for those engaged in research as well as hosting the AUB Human annual symposium and associated events.

Please get in touch with Alice Stevens should you require further information or wish to contribute or be involved in some capacity.
