Something of interest?


Recommended Posts

Not one of our normal posts but I thought this might interest some folks. The Welcome Collection in London (apologies to the non southerns/UK residents), has just opened a new exhibit entitled "States of mind: Tracing the edges of consciousness", see link:

The bit I thought folks on here might find interesting, was that as part of this there is an installation entitled: 'The Whisper Heard', by Imogen Stidworthy, 4 February-24 April. The blurb on this is: "Contrasting the language acquisition of a young child with that of a stroke patient with aphasia - a condition which affects the language centres in the brain - 'The Whisper Heard' explores language, meaning and identity". I suffer with aphasia so was tempted to go along and see if I get the chance.

There is also an open discussion with a guys with a traumatic brain injury during March.

 

FYI the Welcome collection is near Kings Cross/Euston and which for anyone visiting the National Hospital for Neurology & Neurosurgery as I know some people on here do, it's about 1.5 miles from the hospital to the Welcome Collection. If you need any other encouragement it's free and the cafe does really nice cakes! (no I don't have a vested interest in it, it's just quite an interesting place!)
