Invitation to the Medical Humanities Laboratory Launch Event
Thursday 19 November, 5:30 pm, Whitworth Art Gallery
Are you a humanities scholar whose research or teaching considers the meaning and experience of health, health care and biomedicine?
Are you a biomedical researcher interested in how the arts and humanities can add dimension and impact to your work?
Are you an arts practitioner or member of a community group whose work engages with biomedicine and healthcare?
Are you a healthcare practitioner looking for new perspectives on the clinical encounter?
Do you teach healthcare professions students, and would you like to use art, literature and the humanities to enrich their learning?
Would you like to have new conversations, meet potential collaborators, and access more funding?
If so, come join us in the Medical Humanities Laboratory, where innovative collaborations are created!
This new University of Manchester network encourages collaboration and exchange amongst those whose work, practice, and interests involve the artistic, humanistic, and human dimensions of medicine and health.
Please join us at our launch, where we’ll kick off this year’s activities with interactive discussions and exchange of ideas.
Thursday 19 November at the Whitworth Art Gallery, Oxford Rd, Manchester
With drinks and nibbles from 5:30 pm, and ‘speed networking’ and discussion from 6 pm
‘Speed networking’ provides an opportunity to meet colleagues and potential collaborators in an informal but productive – and fun — environment. Please come prepared to tell others about your work, and hear about theirs!
