CHSS welcomes artist in residence

In January, artist Leah Thorn began a ten month residency at the University supported by a Leverhulme Trust Artist in Residence Award. Leah will be working with CHSS Professor of Primary Care Patricia Wilson in collaboration with Canterbury Christ Church University.

Leah is a feminist and poet. The residency will support her in completing a film she is making about Dementia, a subject where she has a special interest. As a feminist she is also very interested in the journeys women make through the various transitions and stages of life.

It is hoped that Leah’s residency will stimulate debate and challenge assumptions. In particular Professor Wilson hopes that it will encourage researchers and practitioners to view challenges in a different way and enable them to come up with new solutions.
