FESTIVAL OF THE MIND
Ignite Imaginations is working with in collaboration with the University of Sheffield via Festival of the Mind funding to explore young people's perspectives on health inequalities
Ignite Imaginations are working in collaboration with Dr Hannah Fairbrother SFHEA, Senior Lecturer in Public Health at the Health Sciences School, University of Sheffield. Via Festival of the Mind funding we are able to work with Chilypep and YMCA (Barnsley), to explore young people’s perspectives on health inequalities. The participants will work with Ignite Imaginations artist Lois to capture their thoughts and frustrations, their hopes and their understanding of this topic.
Our artist, Lois will then take their creations as inspiration to create a large-scale art installation. This will represent the voices of the young people and be displayed as part of the Festival of the Mind, where we will invite people to comment, interact and add to the installation.
Partners: Chilypep, YMCA, Festival of the Mind and University of Sheffield
