Making Conversations at noon – Crafts Council’s Parallel Practices

September 30th, 2014 · No Comments

For the second programme of the Making Conversations series at noon, curator Bronac Ferran is joined by Dr Karen Gaskill and Tiffany Radmore of the Crafts Council to debate challenges and opportunities at the leading edges of craft, medicine and making with glass artist, Matt Durran; Dr Richard Wingate of the Centre for Developmental Neurobiology at Kings; and ceramicist Tamsin van Essen. Wingate and van Essen have recently been awarded a grant to explore new directions in anatomy, funded through the Crafts Council’s new Parallel Practices initiative in tandem with King’s Cultural Institute. Parallel Practices awards seek to demonstrate the value of connecting interdisciplinary skill sets of medical professionals and researchers in the biomedical, dental, psychiatry and medicine schools at King’s with makers in various craft fields. Its aim is to test new ways of working in collaboration in craft and health, to catalyse innovation in materials as well as create interventions to inform clinical outcomes. Four awards have been given which will allow for collaborative working to take place between now and December. The programme will encourage dialogue about the ethics and processes involved in ‘making for medicine’ – a topic which also be explored next month at the Craft Council’s Make-Shift conference in Greenwich.
Making Conversations has been devised especially for Resonance104.4fm’s residency at Science Gallery London Pop Up by Bronac Ferran in partnership with Professor Andrew Prescott, AHRC Digital Transformations Research Fellow; and Dr Karen Gaskill, curator of Innovation at the Crafts Council. [Repeated Saturday 2.30pm.]
