On 2 and 3 November, Rosetta Life will host a programme of workshops and events at New Hunts House, King's College London, exploring the role of the arts in a health care context. Founded in 1997 by Lucinda Jarrett, Rosetta Life is a charity which offers people living with life-limiting conditions the creative means to explore narratives of illness and memory.

The programme includes presentations, film screenings, workshops and discussions as well as a performance of Stroke Odysseys, choreographed by Ben Duke, at Greenwood Theatre on 3 November. Stroke Odysseys is an arts in health initiative that offers a participatory arts practice combining movement, music and song-writing that helps participants to overcome issues, such as anxiety, depression, and lowered self-esteem, which often hamper stroke recovery. For more information about Stroke Odysseys, please click here.

The programme is aimed at dancers, artists and practitioners, as well as those working in the health care community and for those living with a neurological illness. Led by practitioners working in the field, participants will gain a deeper knowledge of using dance and the arts as a form of rehabilitation. 

More information about the programme can be found here.

Tickets for both the workshops and performance on 2 and 3 November can be booked here.

Tickets for the performance on 3 November can be booked here.
