During March we are highlighting some of our Health & Wellbeing projects, including Representing Communities. The aim of this project is to establish how community representations produced through creative arts practices (e.g. story-telling, performance, visual art) can be used as forms of evidence to inform health-related policy and service development. This study will develop methods for using creative art forms as a mode of communication and knowledge exchange. Five case studies across Wales, Scotland, and England contributed to this project.
This video shows the public art exhibition that the Representing Butetown project created and focused on the lived experiences and the day-to-day performances of wellbeing by elders, many of whom live in – or retain strong links to – this area.
More information about the project can be found here and we will be sharing more work by the Representing Butetown project over March on Twitter, and here on the blog.
