Etyma: A tiding of good words

Sheila is currently co-creating a series of works with service-users from Broad Oak Unit, as part of TATE Space 2014 - a partnership between Tate Liverpool and Mersey Care NHS Trust.

The project takes its inspiration from the Keywords: Art, Culture and Society in 1980s Britain exhibition currently on at TATE Liverpool, and more specifically Rose Finn Kelcey's The Magpie's Box a performance 'toolkit' (on display as part of it).

Key words have been used to stimulate everything from conversation to audio recording, to sketching and filming. Participants have been able to drop in and out of sessions at any time over the course of the nine-week project.

The results - titled Etyma: A tiding of good words - will be displayed at TATE Liverpool in July:

Thursday 10 - Saturday 12 July, 11.00 - 17.00 FREE

It is also one of Liverpool Biennial's 2014 listed exhibitions.

Feel free to contact Sally if you have any questions about the project or would like to know more: sally@sheilaghelani.co.uk
