What will be happening at King’s?
Jayne: King’s will run a series of movement workshops and artist enquiry for a group of final year Dental students. Workshops will be facilitated by Mark Rietema inviting students into a physical exploration of challenges they may face in the world of work, putting aside intellectual knowledge in favour of a more 'felt' experience.
What will students gain from this?
Flora: Activities will be aimed at supporting professional identity formation, building leadership attributes, cultural agility, situational awareness and conflict resolution.
What change does the project hope to make?
Jayne: We want to give equal opportunity to students of all disciplines to experience a different mode of acquiring knowledge that allows alternative ways of seeing the world and their place in it. We hope that our findings will support the integration new experiential and arts-based modules into core curricula across all King’s faculties. We also have a range of academic outputs which include joint cross-institution modules, joint publications, and an international conference in 2022 with the Arts Cabinet.
