Living in Silence: Giving voice to the hidden stories of British South Asian Women: The University of Wolverhampton’s Psychology Department has undertaken interviews with South Asian patients suffering from inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and want to enlist artists/ designers to create works raising awareness and dispelling myths and stigmas surrounding this condition.
They are looking to commission 5 graduate artists/ designers to undertake a micro- residency in the School of Art to make work based on experiences of British South Asian women living with IBD
Residencies will be hosted within the School of Art and will provide opportunities for artists /designers to work in any of our specialist areas including: Fine Art, Graphics, Illustration, Interior/ Product Design, Glass, Ceramics, Fashion, Textiles, Photography, Print, Computer Games, Animation and Film. The work will be exhibited at a number of public events and locations in the region.
The academic team will provide selected artists with anonymous patient accounts (interview transcript) and support artists/designers through the initial research and development in terms of providing specialist knowledge of the condition and communities affected.
