The Use of Art Making as a Means of Living with Chronic Illness

   - A talk and workshop by Christine Croteau

  

Christine is a conceptual artist/activist who primarily works with recycled found objects to create often provocative and controversial sculptural installations. She will give a brief talk on her current piece in the Healing Fibers show and how she uses art making as way to manage living with Type 1 Diabetes. After the talk, she will invite those interested to create a sculptural piece made with diabetic medical supplies, working first individually and then collaboratively. The invitation is to come together as a group to play and create, in order to learn how to transform a challenging, often isolating experience, into one of connection and healing. No experience necessary (other than being human).
