Performing DNA; Social Prescription and Mental Health

Vivian Chinasa Ezugha will be presenting an extract online from her current project, Performing DNA; social prescription and mental health on Saturday 2 November 2019. She is an international artist whose work has been commissioned by festivals such as SPILL Festival, In Between Time, Pittsburgh Performance Art Festival and so on.

She says “My work sits within a space of flux, I make work that are my acts of protest. As an artist I work with the ethos of sharing to care, what I have to bring is myself and the knowledge of sharing to care. My current research questions relate to mental health, the performance of health and the politics of living within a body marginalised within the care system.”

Performing DNA; social prescription and mental health; is a new project that provides new perspectives on mental health and wellbeing, food and the impact of food in sustaining wellbeing in marginalised bodies.

Vivian says she is excited to be part of the Inside/Outside Symposium – “to learn as much as to share knowledge with others. Not just to share my research, but also understand, what is current, what is being said, and gain feedback.”

The presentation will be available online from 2 November and you are warmly invited to share thoughts, information and feedback as part of an online discussion in the comments below.

Please do leave a comment and Vivian will respond in due course.
