Considering Bodies — bodies broken, bodies mended, and bodies as seen by others
An Exhibition of Creative Pieces by third-year students on the Intercalated BA in Medical Humanities at the University of Bristol.
Friday and Saturday, 26 and 27th May // Peoples Republic of Stokes Croft Space, Jamaica Street // 10.30 am to 5 pm
Each year the University of Bristol offers medical students (from Bristol and elsewhere) the opportunity to pause their studies and gain an intercalated BA in medical humanities. Joining English and Philosophy students, these medical students are able to explore some of the wider issues around healthcare from an arts and humanities perspective.
This exhibition comes as the culmination of these students’ study and is built around a range of creative pieces from the students which consider bodies — bodies broken, bodies mended, and bodies as seen by others.
These works are supplemented with reports from students’ experiences learning about the role that music, art and theatre may play in therapy and how the arts contribute to well-being within the medical community.
This year the students reports include the work of the Drive project, some reflections on the use of theatre in thinking about empathy in the doctor-patient relationship, and the work of the Jenner Museum in Berkeley (the ‘home’ of vaccination).
All are very welcome.
