Seminar Two

Dr Theo Stickley, University of Nottingham, "Arts & Health Research: Lessons from a Decade of Arts on Prescription Provision"

Time: 6.00-7.30pm (doors open at 5.30pm). Thursday 2 May 2013.
Location: Boyd Orr 507 (Lecture Theatre C, 5th floor). University Avenue, Glasgow. (Building D1 on the downloadable Gilmorehill campus map.)

The evening seminar will examine the relationship between creative expression and mental health, as well as providing an introduction to narrative theory, and a presentation of findings from research on "Arts on Prescription".

Dr Stickley's Masterclass, "Narrative Research for Arts and Health" will be held in the University of Glasgow 2.30-4.30pm on Thursday 2 May (the afternoon before the seminar). This will include a brief overview of narrative research approaches, then participants will engage with story-telling with one-another. Some time will be spent thinking about how we might analyse our stories. The focus will be upon our relationship with creativity, to ensure an exploration of the meaning-making we exercise in our thinking about creativity. This is intended to be enjoyable but at the same time challenging and stimulating.

The evening seminar is open to all, but please contact the Seminar Series Administrator if you would like to attend the afternoon masterclass – all are welcome, but we need to keep track of numbers. Funds are available to offset travel costs from postgraduates and non-salaried postdoctoral researchers from outside the Central Belt of Scotland.
