We are thrilled to announce an open programme of Performing Medicine workshops.
Performing Medicine was founded in 2001 by Clod Ensemble Artistic Director Suzy Willson. It was created to explore how ideas and techniques found in arts and theatre might help medical students develop vital skills required to navigate the day-to-day realities of being a medical professional. We have been delivering this award-winning learning programme to medical students at Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry as well as NHS Trusts across the UK for over 15 years and have worked with over 16,000 healthcare professionals and students drawing on techniques from the arts to encourage participants to use their bodies and voices for effective communication, and to better look after themselves and each other. Many skills that are taught in the arts are transferable to working in healthcare environments, and indeed many other environments.
We are now opening some of our unique programmes to the general public, each delivered by an expert artist-facilitator, offering a wide range of workshops and courses that will focus on a range of subjects including anatomical drawing, photography with a medical gaze, embodying confidence, non-verbal communication and self-care. Perhaps you are looking to develop your personal practice, or looking to focus on personal development. Whether you are a student, healthcare professional, artist, leader of a team, or simply have an interest in our work, these courses will be interesting and relevant to people from all backgrounds and specialisms.
