We IMAGINE drawing and poetry

Opportunity to take part in our new arts project: a collaboration between IMAGINE 2 and Creative Complexity

Creative Complexity is a Wellcome Trust funded project by Dr Sam Chawner and Catrin Hopkins at Cardiff University, and Neus Torres Tamarit and Ben Murray from Phenotypica. We use creativity as a way to discuss and raise awareness about rare genetic conditions.

Our goal is to find creative ways for people to express their relationship with rare genetic conditions from different perspectives. You may be a person with a rare genetic condition, a family member, or caregiver.

We want to raise awareness of life with rare genetic conditions through your creative output, and also to create a way for people with rare genetic conditions and their families to share their experiences with each other through creative means.

As part of Creative Complexity we are hosting a workshop We IMAGINE Poetry” and an offline activity “ We IMAGINE Drawing” for families. You can take part in one or both parts of the project.
