Memento Mori at the Barber Institute

14/05/2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Memento Mori: Exploring Death & Dying Through Art

Friday 14 May, 10am – 12noon.

Free; online via Zoom.

Artists have always explored death and dying through their art, producing both literal and metaphorical depictions of this universal human theme.

Through guided looking, response and group discussion this workshop will use selected works from the Barber’s art collection to encourage reflection, questioning and conversation around death and dying.

The workshop will be led by Jane Nicol, the Barber’s current Nurse in Residence and a Senior Lecturer at the University of Birmingham’s School of Nursing, and Jen Ridding, Head of Public Engagement at the Barber Institute.

This discussion-based workshop will be hosted over Zoom, providing an opportunity to come together and talk about these topics in a supportive and non-judgemental way. Further details about the workshop content and structure will be shared after booking.
