Upcoming workshops and shows!
It’s going to be a very busy March in England, as I will be offering two different workshops on zine-making and arts-based research, and will also be opening a show at Anglia Ruskin University. It’s a lot of art. But I would say that right now we need all the art we can get. Because art heals. Art heals. Art heals. Art heals. So let’s art.
You can get ART three different ways depending on where you are! It’s FREE!

Join me for a workshop on Zine-Making at the University of Nottingham. This is a workshop for people doing qualitative research. If you have questions about whether or not this is a good workshop for you, drop me a note and we will sort it.
The purpose of this workshop is to open up a methodological discussion about the role of the visual arts in qualitative research writ large, and then to practice using drawings to work with our data using strategies from creative nonfiction writing and arts-based research work. This workshop asks you to come to the session with a small body of descriptive qualitative data with which you would like to work. It would also be helpful if you brought copies of any artifacts or important visual representations from your fieldwork (or elsewhere) that you would feel comfortable using for collage purposes (optional). Together we will identify, transform and open up important moments from our research into tiny jewel-box zines to share resonant meaning in our work. Participants will complete one zine of their own for distribution, trading or library-building, or as analytic tools for future writing.
Tuesday, 22nd March
Attend a zine-making workshop for everyone–not just researchers– at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, sponsored by the LSHTM Athena SWAN working group in honor of Women’s History Month. This in-person workshop provides an opportunity to discuss the role of the visual arts in defining and telling evocative stories about our lives, and then to practice using drawings to work with our stories using strategies from creative nonfiction writing and arts-based research work.
