Art and Medicine Workshop II

Thursday 13 May, 6.00pm-7.30pm


Medical and art historical skills come together in this free workshop for medical and health practitioners led by Dr John Terry and Dr Janice Lally.

Investigate visual language and refine your communication skills while exploring topical social and cultural themes through close observation of artworks in the Paper Cut exhibition

Dr John Terry is the Clinical Director of the UWA Guild Medical Clinic. A GP for over 25 years, he has worked in Psychiatry, Travel and Emergency Medicine. He has always found the world of visual art a source of inspiration and education and is delighted to be able to make art a very real practical tool for improving observation and communication in the medical setting.

Dr Janice Lally is Curator of Academic and Public Programs at the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery. She is an art historian who also worked for over 20 years as a medical research scientist, including in neurophysiology and clinical biochemistry. For Dr Lally, bringing knowledge of art together with science is a means of enriching and extending appreciation and understandings in both.

Campus Partners: UWA Medical Centre and UWA Student Life
