Description

This sci-art research project has explored how to live equitabliy with long covid through public realm intervention with place. The reserach process has engaged with Clinical research from Long Covid lived experiences, scientists, artist researchers and public stakeholder partners. Under the curation of Rhiannon Jones, to address the research question through generation of a high- quality city wide community project.

The thought-provoking installation was located at Derby Cathedral and the Museum of Making and featured a display of artworks ranging from podcasts, photography, mixed media, live performances, online and in-person workshops and shared research data.

There are QR codes located on the installation to take you to a wide range or works made by local and national artists and organisations on the topic of Shedding Light on Long Covid. S.H.E.D is a platform for the public to communicate their thoughts and opinions on the issues affecting their daily life.

This project invests in culture as a driver for change, (one of the key CUA Goals at the University of Derby and core ethos of S.H.E.D), through educating society about living with long covid by creating a bespoke S.H.E.D (see @shed_uk) installation.

The research enquiry:
• Highlighted need for health and wellbeing services.
• Increase public awareness of living with covid and challenges
• Provided positive change for isolated patient & public representatives through participation
Utilising design thinking the long covid community has a unique position to highlight and tackle problems
like those addressed in the 17 UN SDGs. S.H.E.D’s reputation to create new ways of creative placemaking
will be mobilised to attend to the needs of local communities to influence policy thinking on long covid.
See: public sustainable approach to co-designing with communities (green gown award finalist 2021), Case
study for NCACE (jones, Kemp 202), Design Council, (Design for Planet 2021).

• Highlighted Civic value creative place-maker for responding to societal issues
• Profiled how stakeholders (below) are responding to this problem.
• Commissioned established artists researchers of National and International Standing to create
new works based on clinical and lived experience data.
