A series of visual arts workshops will be held as part of the Hepatitis See project at Falkirk Trinity Church, Manse Place, Falkirk, FK1 1JN on the following dates:
- Tuesday 20th June, 12pm – 3pm
- Tuesday 27th June, 12pm – 3pm
- Tuesday 4th July, 12pm – 3pm
Refreshments and public travel expenses will be available.
The workshops are not only for those diagnosed as HCV+ but also for anyone who has been touched by a loved one’s diagnosis and will ask participants to express how Hepatitis C has affected their lives.
Local activist and artist Rebecca Wood will deliver an introduction and 3 workshops for people affected by Hepatitis C in Forth Valley. The workshops will help those affected to explore self-identity and stigma both perceived and real. A national and local exhibition will take place on World Hepatitis Day 2017, Friday 28th July, for those who wish to show their work from the workshops.
There is also a digital photography competition taking place until Friday 14th July. Hepatitis Scotland are looking for submissions from people affected by Hepatitis C in Scotland. Submissions should represent how the photographers experience attitudes of others towards them and/or how they view themselves as someone living with Hepatitis C.
Entry to the competition is not restricted to those attending the workshops.
