The art of kintsugi: creativity and wellbeing

Admission Free
Start Time 15:00
End Time 16:30

This informal talk will look at how National Museums Liverpool treats objects in its care, discussing how and why objects have value, and the art of kintsugi, which adds value to damaged objects. It will then compare this to how we think about health and wellbeing.

How do we value an object, especially one in a museum collection? Similarly, how do we value people, including ourselves? How do we consider a person’s worth? What would happen if we took a holistic approach when considering a person’s value rather than just what they were “worth” to society?

Join them for a vibrant discussion on this topic with National Museums Liverpool colleague and disability rights activist Gillian Ashcroft-Smith.

This talk is part of the Disability History Month events programme.
