Bronwen’s wish is a collaborative and interdisciplinary project between the two partner institutions, the University of Wales Trinity St David (UWTSD) and the University of South Wales (USW) and the Bronwen’s Wish Foundation. The project aims to provide an architectural and graphic design project that combines sustainability with ideas of mental health and well-being. The BSc (Hons) Architecture students at UWTSD were tasked with designing a wellbeing center for Cardiff High School and USW’s BA (Hons) Graphic Communication students were asked to design a campaign to promote the center to Cardiff High’s pupils. The design of the project gives the students a chance to 'have their say'; to test their views and opinions on these key issues to plan and create a vision for something new. This paper discusses how the project was deployed and the students’ outcomes.
