Graphic Medicine for Contact Tracing
We are seeking an artist to collaborate with our research team to produce a public-facing graphic medicine output about public health efforts in contact tracing during the pandemic.
We are University of Cambridge-based social researchers who have been collaborating closely with public health experts and community organizations in Hackney since mid-2020. Our project seeks to better understand the successes and challenges of the use of traditional and digital contact tracing during the COVID-19 pandemic by collecting and analysing insights from community leaders, community residents, and public health practitioners. The project focuses on the London Borough of Hackney as a case study.
We are enthusiastic about presenting our research findings in a creative and accessible way. We are seeking a UK-based artist and would be especially excited to work with someone based in or familiar with Hackney. We will work with the artist to establish the exact size, scope, and details of the graphic medicine output which we hope to release in April 2023.
If you are interested in collaborating, please send a brief introduction and sample of your work to Dr Alexa Hagerty firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to talking with you, sharing more about this project, and learning more about your work.
