Drawing Out Obstetric Fistula. A new international and cross-cultural project about women’s gynaeological health

Here is the link for a new project that I am beginning with a ‘pilot’ study research visit to Tanzania in December. http://drawingof.wordpress.com/

IMG_1569Running alongside Drawing Women’s Cancer  and entitled Drawing Out Obstetric Fistula: exploring the ramifications of maternal birth trauma through art, this project is intimately related to its ‘parent’ in terms of the methodology and the primary aims. I am very excited about developing this work and optimistic too about the potential for visual art to cross international, cultural and linguistic borders, especially given language  itself is such an important factor in the philosophical framework of all my work that is rooted in the art-medicine relation. You can read more details about this new project by following the link and I hope you will follow the progress of the work on the associated artist’s blog page.
