Art and allergy

Phoenix Arts Association have been awarded a grant from The Wellcome Trust for artist Anna Dumitriu to work on a project about allergy entitled “Sensitive”:

“The project is transdisciplinary and crosses the boundary between art and science enabling a greater understanding of allergy through scientific research and innovative art techniques (such as live art, video and installation). The project looks at both the medical and emotional impact of this increasingly common condition, raising awareness of different coping strategies and developing participants methods of expression”

(quoted from the project’s website)

They also have a blog that documents the progress of the project. Welcome to the growing club of project blogs 🙂
