THE WHITWORTH GROUP
The Whitworth Group is an interdisciplinary group who regularly meet at the Whitworth Gallery and who have combined expertise in psychology, genetic counselling, narrative practices, media and communications. We have a shared interest in the definition of ‘rare’ and what this means to us all. This led to us developing “RARE” – a project funded by the ESRC via the University of Manchester. The project includes a podcast series and two lives events; the first planned for Rare Disease day at the Whitworth Art Gallery.
RARE-D LIVE EVENT IN MANCHESTER
Join us throughout the day at the gallery when we explore what it means to be ‘Rare’. There will be games, activities, treats, exhibits from our RARE art competition and the opportunity to talk to scientists about what happens in a genetics laboratory. We will be recording a podcast at midday in the Great Hall – join us there!
