Arts & Heritage
Graphic Recorder Tom Bailey is capturing the discussions at the workshops in his distinctive cartoon style. Tom is a freelance illustrator and well-being worker with Arts and Minds
Experimental Designer and Maker Jessie White also has some experience in nursing and care delivery. She will make something to capture and promote discussion about either representations of the wounded body for patient centred care and/or how everyday artefacts of wound care in domestic or clinical use are entangled with identities and embodied experiences of health and illness.
Collections Curators from the Thackray Medical Museum, Lauren Ryall-Stockton and Catherine Robins have been helping us run object handling sessions at the workshops. Thackray Medical Museum tells the story of medicine from Roman times to the present day and cares for over 70,000 objects, archival items and books. Only a small selection of these can be displayed, with many more in storage. The museum works hard to facilitate access to these hidden collections and offers bookable group sessions as well as bespoke workshops, such as those for the Wound Care project.
