Creative Practice Event Series: Covid Through A Creative Lens

How Have Healthcare Workers Used Creative Expression to Make Meaning Of Their Worlds?


Tue 9 March 2021, 5:30 PM – 6:30 PM GMT


About this Event

One year after the World Health Organisation declared Covid-19 a pandemic, StoryLab Research at Anglia Ruskin University present their creative collaboration with some of the health care professionals (HCPs) who have been on the frontline these past 12 months.

StoryLab will show an excerpt of their latest documentary film project which grew out of “The Frontline” archive started in April 2020 as a tool to document and preserve the experiences of HCPs.

Come and listen to some of StoryLab’s HCP collaborators on the film and find out why they chose to document their professional and personal experiences of the pandemic through various creative media (photography, text, artwork).

We will discuss how creative expression helped HCPs find meaning in their experiences and the experiences of their peers, and how their creative work offered the public a deeper insight into the pandemic.

Please join StoryLab and their collaborators on “The Frontline” project for a film excerpt, panel discussion and Q&A on Tuesday 9th March 2021.

Link to the panel will be sent to attendees the day before the event (8th March).
