Hope, lost and found: kidney disease and the power of art

23 November, 2017, 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

An exhibition with a screening at the Brian Friel Theatre in Queen’s University Belfast. The exhibition of ‘Human Beings Being Human’ incorporates a presentation from Mr Ian Walsh, a consultant urologist and professional musician, who will share his experience of treating patients with kidney disease in relation to the the life-affirming power of art. The exhibition will also involve the screening of an act from the play Gift of Donation by Mr William Johnston, a member of the Renal Arts Group at Queen’s, former Chairman of NIKPA (Northern Ireland Kidney Patient Advocacy), and currently Northern Ireland Kidney Patient Advocacy and Support Officer for Kidney Care UK. The aim is to engage the wider community with healthcare professionals, patients and carers who are variously dealing with kidney disease in a celebration of life through the medium of artistic expression and showcase the interdisciplinary research of which the event is an outcome.

This event is part of the series Belfast celebrates the humanities.
