Nicola Colclough – Arts & Health: International best Practice between East & West

Nicola Colclough - Arts & Health: International best Practice between East & West

Whisper Residency.

Manchester-based artist Nicky Colclough has worked with Chinese Arts Centre as a contemporary artist educator since 2011. In late 2012, she began an international research trip and all round adventure to explore a true personal passion around her arts practice; the connection between arts and health.

Using this research time to develop both her own practice and knowledge around best practice in arts and health across Asia and Australasia, Nicola will now return to Manchester to share her findings through a reflective residency here at the centre.

Her Whisper Residency will share, discuss and test her findings and new ideas with a local audience of artists and thinkers. This will include a series of drop in workshops looking at working with older peoples groups, and an off-site partner project with Young People’s organisation, 42nd Street – our friends from the neighbourhood http://42ndstreet.org.uk/ ! Look out for open studio events at the end of August.

To date, she has worked in the Osaka Children’s Hospital, Japan, and the Olivia Newton John Cancer Care and Wellness Centre, Melbourne. She is currently artist-in-residence is at the 501 Art Space in Chongqing, China.
