Creative Coffee Break Conversation: the role of culture in addressing health inequalities, an event by Arts Culture Health and Wellbeing Scotland.

A Frame is Not a State of Mind – Artist Talk

10:30 – 11:30am Tuesday 7 December 2021

on-line via Zoom

“Health inequalities are the unjust and avoidable differences in people’s health across the population and between specific population groups.

Health inequalities go against the principles of social justice because they are avoidable. They do not occur randomly or by chance. They are socially determined by circumstances largely beyond an individual’s control. These circumstances disadvantage people and limit their chance to live longer, healthier lives.”  (Public Health Scotland)

Chris McAdam and James McLardy will be in conversation to discuss their process of making their collaborative film works during the two lockdowns. The first collaboration explored remoteness and the strangeness of the moment. The second key, life moments and their collaborative working relationship. Both films explore and question feelings of isolation and anxiety.

You can access the films that Chris and James will talk about here: A Frame is Not a State of Mind  and  Summer in to Autumn.

Chris and James will have a small invited audience joining them in-person, with other members of the public being involved via Zoom.
