Description

Event 4: Resistance and Resilience. Working with Willow Withies.

Facilitated by Julie Walters and Sarah Smizz

In this workshop we will attempt to make wearable structures with willow, and as we consider a quote from Tim Ingold’s book, Making, (Ingold 2013) we will discuss the ways in which the term resilience is used within health care, and how arts based practices may be seen and not seen as a form of resistance. We will also reflect on the place that basketry has in the history of mental health care, giving rise to the derogatory term “basket case”.

///////////////////////////////////////////////////

The *Critical* Arts in Health Network (CAHN) seeks to explore and critique assumptions of arts in healthcare contexts, to analyze the contexts in which art in healthcare fail, and where they succeed (and under what conditions).

We would love to grow this network to generate more dialogue and projects together. Through the SHU doctoral school we have been given a small amount of funding to help nurture these discussions.

So we have created 4 events that will celebrate and offer a space of creative, playful and critical thinking. This will include thinking through making, networking, critical debate, film showings and future planning of what pushing the boundaries of critical-dialogues & paradigms that surround Art/design in Healthcare/wellbeing can look like.

We hope that together we can begin to nurture a critical language of ‘arts in health’ and support the creation and dissemination of artistic methodologies within healthcare research. We hope that this event will help to encourage the field of a critical art and health discourse beyond this network.

CAHN is for anyone interested in or working at the interfacebetween Art/Design and Health/Wellbeing.
