society wears blindfolds

We have been lucky to have Gemma join us as a volunteer on A Map of You sessions at the Big Issue offices. She's on placement at the Big Issue, whilst studying Social Work. A big thanks to you Gemma for your insights, enthusiasm, energy and countless cups of tea. Phil's written a fuller interview with Gemma, to follow at a later date, in the meantime heres a short quote:

'Making art allows conversations in a very unthreatening way. We're (social workers) another person whose trying to help- they might have had bad experiences of that...' Gemma

We've shared similar experiences to this before. Working with social care or health care professionals has been beneficial for both us as artists and them as professionals, giving a creative way to share insights on people.
