‘Paint Your Pain’ Public Workshop

22 February at 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


We are pleased to invite members of the public to take part in a workshop for the ‘Paint your Pain’ Health and Wellbeing project at OVADA with Sarvenas Sohrabi.

The project, led by MiNaTher at the University of Southampton, asks participants to paint their pictorial representation of pain related to any illness directly or indirectly connected to the person. The team are interested in analysing artworks collected during workshops. This is done by detecting differences in shapes, use of different colours, different types of brush strokes, size of the drawing and so on. This will allow them to communicate to the public how pain linked to illness affects everyday life.

Watch a video about the project on Twitter.

Workshops will be held on Friday 22 February 2019 from 10 am – 12 pm or 2pm – 4pm. These events are for participants 16 years old and above.

Please note: the workshop is due to take place in our first floor learning space, accessed via stairs only. If this would prevent you from attending, please contact us in advance so that we can discuss individual requirements.

This project is a collaboration between MiNaTher, University of Southampton, John Hansard Gallery, PERuPint of Science Festival and OVADA.
