Arpilleras are colourful patchworks, originally sewn by women in Chile under the dictatorship. Through them, women ‘spoke out’ visually about human rights abuses and processed emotions impossible to put into words. Due to this power of expression, non-verbal communication and their multi-sensory nature, this project seeks to evaluate the effectiveness of working with arpilleras as a participatory, visual arts-based method in contexts with people from different cultures and languages and who might have experienced loss and trauma. It brings together researchers from the UK and New Zealand to explore the use of arpilleras as a research method.
This one day event includes diverse speakers from the world of international development, psychology, peace studies and religion studies to look afresh and in a more nuanced way at the topic of gender and violence. Through our exciting and deliberately diverse programme of key note talks and thought and discussion panels we aim to add diverse inputs and perspectives but also conversation spaces on this topic in order to provoke and stimulate thinking.
This meeting of the Faith and Peaceful Relations Forum, ‘Swords into Ploughshares?’ will explore this tension and reflect on some of the ways in which faith groups can contribute to conflict prevention and peacebuilding.
The project will explore the potential for digital innovations to improve health and wellbeing for a frail elderly population, including people living with dementia. Interventions will be evaluated in high-tech ‘living lab’ environments to assess whether they produce improvements in residents’ quality of life and enable better support provision by carers. Secondary outcomes measured will include positive impact on activities of daily living, improved cognition, and reduced health & care resource use.
Elders’ access to health care provision in the UK (and globally, e.g. in US) is problematic. The distributed nature of health care, complexity of illnesses associated with old age, and cutbacks in transport provision. Although the precise direction of the PhD will be based on the background and interests of the candidate, the overall aim will be to propose and test realistic and transferable transport solutions to improve the accessibility and health care experience of older patients.
