Creative wellbeing workshops that enable UCC students to commission a new artwork for the UCC Art Collection. Attend a livestream of this new performance artwork on 15 January by registering at this link.
The Glucksman invited third level students at University College Cork to participate in a series of workshops with artist Inma Pavon in order to develop an artwork that focuses on mental health and creative wellbeing. The participants explored issues such as mental health awareness, stigma and recovery through guided discussions, campus walks, practical movements and creative activities.
Inma Pavon will draw on these sessions to shape the development of a new performance that will be premiered as part of First Fortnight Festival in 2022.
The live performance will also be accompanied by a set of choreography notes and film documentation to facilitate further discussions around creativity and wellbeing amongst wider audiences.
