What we are doing
We are working with amazing young artists from Hackney New School to explore the subject of type 2 diabetes and raise awareness in the community.
The project included 3 workshops led by Annie Nicholson, graphic artist and Head of Art at Hackney New School and Amanda Moore, researcher on the HEAL-D team. The artists learnt about diabetes and how to live well with the condition as well as exploring the subject creatively through print media, video, rhyme & song.
The work was exhibited at SPACE gallery on 29th November 2017. The evening celebrated the young artist's work and gave people the chance to learn more about type 2 diabetes, African & Caribbean tailored dietary & lifestyle advice and the HEAL-D project.
