Bowen Street, Melbourne

Join us for this experimental and participatory event to explore the boundaries of the body at the end of life (touch, embodiment, gestures and more) through roving conversations as we consider end of life scenarios.

So, hand to mouth and then to wax, speaking, eating and gesticulating. Haptic activities and refreshments provided.

Presented by Rebecca Hilton (University Arts Stockholm), Keely Macarow (School of Art), Gretchen Coombs (School of Media & Communications), Kit Wise (School of Art), Soumitri Varadarajan (School of Design) and Fleur Summers (School of Art).

A Creative Care event for End of Life: Co-designing space and place, an interdisciplinary project in partnership with Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, the University of Arts Stockholm and the Karolinska Institutet (Stockholm).

This intra university and cancer centre project combines creative arts, participatory design, ethnographic and health methods to explore the possibilities, experience and challenges of spaces within the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.

Supported by the RMIT Capability Development Fund, DCP ECP, CAST and the School of Art.
