XR Health Alliance
Sarah has spent her career working across the interdisciplinary arts, academia, healthcare, and technology as a producer, curator, artist, and researcher. She graduated from the University of Kent with a First Class Honours in Anthropology with a Year in Japan BSc. Following her degree, she worked with the NHS before moving into contemporary art, worked with organizations including Fabrica Gallery, Lighthouse, The School of Life, The Big Anxiety Festival, and Stanford University.
In May 2019 she founded Hatsumi, a research and design studio exploring the intersection of arts, health, and immersive technology. We work with patients, artists, researchers, and healthcare professionals to develop experiences that challenge how we think and feel about the world and imagine the future of health and wellbeing. She is the producer on Deep, a meditative VR experience controlled by breathing, and the Healthcare Lead for Immerse UK, working to support a community of UK XR healthcare practitioners and find ways that creative technologists, researchers, and healthcare practitioners can work together to create a sustainable future for XR in healthcare.
