DEAR – Design Around Onlus is a non-profit association that fosters the humanization of hospital environments.

We are a group of professionals with a variety of backgrounds, spanning art, architecture and design, communication, fundraising, technology, photography and video making, anthropology, pedagogy and psychology.

In 2016, we founded DEAR – Design Around Onlus, a non-profit association that fosters the humanization of hospital environments through projects built on creative disciplines and contemporary codes.

Our most important project so far is Robo&Bobo, an innovative didactic workshop on coding, digital fabrication, electronics and digital graphic design, developed to turn the negative experience of hospitalization into an opportunity to help tees and pre-teens approach new technologies. The first two editions of Robo&Bobo were carried out in the Pediatric Onco-hematology department of Regina Margherita Hospital, in Turin, engaging 171 kids with 322 workshop activities and a team of over 20 professionals.
