Join us for an afternoon of discussion exploring the powerful issues raised by Rankin’s exhibition, Alive in the Face of Death.
Sandra Penketh, Director of Art Galleries for National Museums Liverpool, is joined by Mandy Paine MBE, whose portrait features in the exhibition, Sam Turner from the Dying Matters Coalition and John Gorkowski from Woodlands Hospice.
The panellists will explore the amazing public response to the exhibition and the role it has played in changing public knowledge, attitudes and behaviours towards dying, death and bereavement. Mandy Paine will talk about the process of working with Rankin and give an insight into how her photograph was created, as well as a personal perspective on the impact of participating in the exhibition. John Gorkowski will discuss the role of arts in palliative care.
Following short talks by each of the speakers the event will conclude with an open discussion.
The event is free but advance booking is essential by calling 0151 478 4199 or at the welcome desk at the Walker Art Gallery.
Please advise us of any mobility requirements at the time of booking.
This event is part of the ALIVE: In The Face of Death exhibition.
