An idea emerged in the studio during the work we were doing around ‘the mind and body’ : perhaps we might exhibit in The Cumbria Infirmary. Some contact between college and ‘Arts in Health’ people at the hospital, it appeared, – all a bit vague really but quite exciting. I was interested in this potential liaison because my work at the time was exploring the dual brain theory relating to mental well-being and gut bacteria.
The hospital person might come in to college ……..
As time passed, it seemed that this liaison was just that – an idea! But, the hospital person did send us details about ‘The First Cumbria Arts In Health Conversation’ that would take place in January 2019.
I got a ticket.
The ‘hospital person’ is called Susie ( http://susietate.co.uk/) and I hooked up with her at the conference. She led a presentation that brought the delegate audience to tears with the ‘Live work’ on stage demonstrating the work of ‘About Being’ https://www.applied.co.uk/proud-supporting-unique-dance-project-stroke-survivors/
All in all, a fascinating day.
