Graphic Medicine Workshop on the Outer Cape (Cod), June 13 – 17
I’m going back to the Truro Center for the Arts for another intimate (capped at ten students) week-long graphic medicine workshop. Take five afternoons to frame and reframe your experiences with illness, recovery, health and caregiving through the making, “reading,” and listening to illustrated narratives (50¢ word for stories). What’s known as “cognitive reappraisal” has documented mental and physical health benefits (aka I’m not just making this sh*t up). In the words of Dorothy Allison,
The workshop will include a mix of a little lecture/demo, lots of making with individual coaching/conferencing, some discussion and sharing (optional), likely a little crying, and plenty of laughing. Not much on media techniques, in fact, exercises will limit materials to focus on story, not say, perfect execution (aka writers, artists of all levels including non-writers and non-artists), as well as those in the medical profession, and health practitioners with zero writing/art experience are most welcome).
