Body Mapping workshop: communicating the stories within our bodies
What is more painful: embarrassment or bruises? This hands-on practical session will guide you on an exploratory journey into the diverse experiences of pain and healing through producing your own body map.
Body Mapping is a creative process allowing you to explore and artistically communicate the stories you live within your body. Using paint, pens, collage, and more, you will create a life-sized abstraction that visually represents your body's story through times of empowerment, healing and pain.
It is a fun, reflexive, qualitative research technique; perfect for getting your creative juices flowing!
The workshop will be led by Ceri Elizabeth Maltby, postgraduate research student in anthropology at the University of Bristol.
The venue has ramped access and wide aisled toilet at the front of the building. There is also a hearing induction loop installed. If you require the hearing induction loop please email us at least one week in advance of the event to let us know.
Note that there will be photography and filming taking place at the event. If you would prefer not to be filmed or featured in any of this material please let us know. We will also contact you after the event to ask for feedback. If you are not happy to be contacted let us know and we will remove you from the list.
The venue has a licensed bar and street food will be available.
St Paul’s Church is located on Portland Square, a stones throw from Cabot Circus shopping centre and Stokes Croft. There is plenty of metered parking around the venue and a NCP car park a 5-10 minute walk away.
