These unique workshops are specifically designed in conjunction with Liverpool Hospital to engage those with an experience of cancer. By transforming a radiation mask, used in the treatment of head and neck cancers, creative abilities empower individuals towards developing positive associations within their treatment. Visual creativity offers an immediate ownership allowing the patient a reassuring visual voice within a possibly distressing treatment process. The work produced will be displayed at Casula Powerhouse for the Bravery Unmasked exhibition from 27th of October 2018. All money from the sale of masks in the exhibition will be donated back to the Liverpool Wellness Centre.
