Maddening Times: Storytelling Workshop
Part of Bloom: Exeter's Online Festival Of Mental Health Awareness
Mon 10 May 2021
Join us for a special storytelling event from Dr Michael J Flexer as part of Bloom – our online festival to mark Mental Health Awareness Week. You can find out more about the festival including more free, online activity here >>
Being locked-down and out of contact, has been a trying and transformative time for all of us. For some, it has been very stressful, being kept away from loved ones or our routine activities and social groups. For others, the time alone has offered a bit of respite or escape from everyday pressures and problems. We’ve all been through a shared stressful time, but in our own different ways.
Join with us, the Waiting Times project, to share stories of our experiences from this pandemic year.
The session will be run by Dr Michael J Flexer, publicly engaged research fellow, Waiting Times project, Wellcome Centre for Cultures and Environments of Health, University of Exeter.
The Waiting Times project is an interdisciplinary research project at the University of Exeter and Birkbeck, University of London. We’ve been collecting stories of what it means to wait for health or healthcare. You can listen to some of the stories from our work with Hospiscare service-users and also share your own stories directly with us at: www.WhatAreYouWaitingFor.org.uk
This is an online event which will be hosted on Zoom. Please choose the ‘print at home’ option and the Zoom meeting link will appear on your e-ticket.
