Aesthetic Way of Knowing Workshop: Tackling Racism in Health Care

Come join Hartley Jafine on a free workshop hosted by MUNSS!

Hartey Jafine is currently an instructor, facilitating drama and arts based courses, in the Bachelor of Health Sciences (Honours) program at McMaster University. His research is focused on Applied Drama, Theatre of the Oppressed and research-based theatre, specifically using drama within professional health sciences training and environments. He has facilitated Applied Drama workshops and productions both nationally and internationally in Ontario, Nova Scotia, the United States, England, Bulgaria and Kosovo at the Centre for Alternative Theatre Training.

This workshop will creatively explore racism in health care (nurse to patient, patient to nurse, interprofessional team conflict) through Applied Drama exercises.  Participants will develop skills applicable to their nursing practice and everyday life.  No experience in drama and theatre required.
