Festival of Minds and Bodies: Who Cares?

Sun, 1 December 2019 14:00 – 15:00

Attend a screening of a nine-minute film featuring support workers, Learning Disabled and Autistic people discussing their relationships in a selection of moving portraits and extracts from conversations. Support is a vital part of independence for many Learning Disabled and autistic people, and cuts to this kind of care are detrimental to their wellbeing. The film asks what ‘care’ really means and who benefits from these relationships.

‘Who Cares?’ was created by Catherine Long and Felipe Pagini, with participants and support workers from Heart n Soul’s creative art programme ‘Allsorts.’

The film will be followed by a conversation with those involved in the project to discuss these issues further. You will have a chance to ask your questions too.

Location: We’ll be in the Henry Wellcome Auditorium. To get there, take the stairs or the lift down to level –1.

Relaxed event: This is a relaxed event, which means that if you need to, you are welcome to move around and make noise at any time.

First come, first served: Booking a ticket for a free event does not guarantee a place on the day. Doors usually open 15 minutes before an event starts and we advise arriving before the scheduled start time to claim a place. We hold some spaces for people with access requirements. If you have any access requests or requirements, email us at access@wellcomecollection.org or call 020 7611 2222.
