Hopeful Disruption: Positive Change in Social Work and Art

New Town Culture / November 18, 2021 / , United Kingdom


Sometimes, we deliberately take risks and disrupt norms in our day to day lives. Why do we do this? Does this help to develop new and better ways of being? By bringing together artists, social care professionals and academics, can this approach work in social care with young people?

New Town Culture will present a free, live-streamed roundtable bringing together a mix of artists, social workers, academics and care experienced people to discuss ‘hopeful disruption’ in social care.

Including artists Gayle Chong Kwan, Paul Crook and Marley Starskey Butler; Vicky Hart, Social Work England; April Bald the Director for Childrens Care and Support in Barking and Dagenham; Luke Rogers Director of the Care Leaders; social workers Rachel Hughes, Norma O’Connell and Petra Prince and Joint Head of Social Work, Therapeutic and Community Studies at Goldsmiths University Prof. Claudia Bernard; each of the ten participants will explore how positively disrupting norms within the work of social care and art can have increasingly positive outcomes.

The online event, which is open to everyone, coincides with the launch of a new set of professional tools and resources for social care and creative practitioners at www.newtownculture.org
