The University of Liverpool’s Centre for Health, Arts and Science (CHARTS) is hosting the second in the series of Northern Network for Medical Humanities Research workshops. We are delighted that this workshop is being held in collaboration with DaDaFest and as such has a theme of Disability, Art and Wellbeing. Whilst not all papers are focussed specifically on this theme, this is a strong thread that will run throughout the day and other papers on broader issues of medical knowledge and power will compliment this focus.

The day will be divided into 2 parts, encompassing 4 themed panels.

The first part of the day (10.30-14.30) will feature themed panels on “Mind, Body, Affect” and the “Critical Medical Humanities” including short presentations and provocations from academics working in the areas of medical humanities and disability studies. Current confirmed speakers include: Sally Sheard, Stephen Kenny, Ciara Kierans and Jessie Cooper, Kirsty Liddiard, Catherine Jones, Ria Cheyne and Lucy Burke.

The second part of the day (14.30-17.00) will feature panels on “Communities of Interest” and DaDaFest, including presentations from academics working with artists and artists themselves. Confirmed speakers include: Lisa Shaw and Julia Hallam and John Hunt. The final session will include talks from Ruth Gould (creative director of DaDaFest) and Rachel Gadsden (visual and performance artist) and tours of exhibitions that form part of this year’s DaDaFest International Festival: Al Noor – Fragile Vision and Art of the Lived Experiment.

Supported by the Wellcome Trust, the workshops are a showcase of work in progress designed to help build connections and foster collaborations among medical humanities researchers, health professionals, artists and advocates. This meeting coincides with DaDaFest International 2014 which showcases and celebrates the best in Disability and Deaf Arts. The DaDaFest programme is available here: http://www.dadafest.co.uk/the-festival/

The venue has step free access and there will be a signer for the second part of the day. If you have other accessibility needs, please contact us.
