Tuning into Loneliness
A workshop by Janet Batsleer and James Duggan
Brooks Building, Room 2.52.
Wednesday 22nd November, 3-4pm.
The Loneliness Project has been funded by the Co_op Foundation and is a partnership between MMU ESRI and Forty Second Street, a local charity which focuses on young people’s emotional wellbeing and mental health. We have been exploring loneliness through a range of methods and in playful ways. In the last stage of the project we have developed a piece of immersive theatre and taken it on tour to young people’s groups in Great Yarmouth, Rhyll, Glasgow and Ballymeena. We will update on this work with a focus on exploring the researcher/practitioner relationships and how these have been mediated in the work of theatre as enquiry.
