Beyond the Perfect Image

What you’ll do

Join us to celebrate ageing and reflect on illness through a programme of performances, screenings and discussions about what defines a healthy body.

On Saturday, take part in a programme of events including stand-up comedy, singing from St Christopher’s Hospice Community Choir, screening of artists’ films and a discussion of the themes in the exhibition. Join artists, theorists and academics who will discuss embodying contemporary Black creativity. Join us to celebrate the late Jo Spence’s birthday with cake and a fresh look at what it means to get older.

On Sunday, join a writing workshop or drop in to a film screening that delves into how illness shapes our identities.
