    Abstract

    The question of why and for whom we build creative systems is becoming increasingly relevant. We argue that one potential application area is in therapeutic fields. We investigate the reminiscence practices of 13 bereaved participants; exploring possessions used to support reminiscence; interactions with them, and participants' receptiveness to computational creativity (CC) being used to support them. We use our findings to identify 10 provisional design recommendations for CC in a bereavement context.
