Medicine Unboxed: Students 2016
Call for Participation
Deadline: Midnight Sunday 3 July 2016
At a time of extraordinary scientific knowledge and therapeutic possibility, medicine faces significant moral, political and social challenges.
Medicine Unboxed engages the general public and healthcare audiences with a view of medicine that points to human experience, ethical reflection and political debate. We believe the arts can illuminate this perspective, inspire conversation and foster a sense of awe and wonder.
Our annual events attract audiences of 350 people and bring writers, politicians, philosophers, musicians, performers, theologians and artists into dialogue with clinicians and patients.
Medicine Unboxed 2016 is on the theme of Wonder and takes place in Cheltenham on 19-20 November 2016.
Medicine Unboxed: Students brings together students of the arts, health and medicine to present their work and thinking at Medicine Unboxed.
We invite your application for a 10-minute presentation at Medicine Unboxed: Students 2016.
We welcome undergraduate or postgraduate students from all backgrounds, including art, drama, music, medicine, literary studies, philosophy and other health-related subjects. Previous presentations have included conversations and debate, performances, storytelling, dance and comedy, workshops and film.
Your application should be around 500 words long and include: i) Title, ii) Format, iii) Presenters names, iv) Contact email & phone number, v) Educational institution and subject being studied.
Our advisory group will review all applications and we will let you know if you have been selected by 25 July 2016.
From the applications we receive we will select five people who, in addition to presenting at Medicine Unboxed: Students, will work with us as interns for two days helping to set up and support the delivery of Medicine Unboxed: Wonder. Interns are provided with accommodation and travel expenses and are invited to a creative writing workshop with Professor Tiffany Atkinson.
