Invitation to join [about siblings]
Dear girls and boys - mums and dads,
We are very excited to be exploring the beautiful and multi-facet relationship of siblings via our creative project called [about siblings] and would love to invite you on board!
In these times of a global pandemic and isolation, we believe that everyone deserves joyful moments in their day-to-day life and we aspire to enter siblings’ lives through meaningful acts of joy and togetherness.
[about sibling] – ‘[as]' at its heart, touches on the many faces of young siblings’ relationships with great interest on how this relationship is being shaped and nurtured when a child’s brother(s) or sister(s) experiences disability and/or chronic illness.
[as] targets children and young people who are disabled and/or experience chronic illness aged 9 -17 and their siblings, based in Bristol. [as] is due to be implemented between May and July 2021. Subject to covid-19 restrictions, activities will ideally happen with the physical presence of everyone involved in a school facilities, or virtually.
Together with a team of multidisciplinary disabled and non-disabled artists, educators and health professionals the participants will be exchanging ideas of playfulness, reality, dreams and imagination, they will participate in 1:1 and group interviews, focus groups and creative labs. By mixing music, sound and visual references of illustration and costume design we will create our own music as well as wearable sculptures driven by the participants’ imagination.
We would love to hear from you and be happy to answer all questions and discuss any thoughts.
