Artist Surgery - On Care
With Toni-Dee Paul
The Artist Surgeries are designed to offer a space for in-depth, open exchange with someone who has a specialism, lived experience, or interest in a particular topic, field or subject area. You are invited to bring along questions or ideas you want to explore in the session that relate to your own creative practice. Don’t be shy!
On Care with Toni-Dee Paul
This session will explore integrating care and wellbeing into creative processes.
Toni-Dee is an independent artist based in Manchester. Occasionally she is a writer, workshop leader, collaborator, and ‘thinker-in-the room’. Her current body of work, made with ‘infectious warmth’ (Exeunt) is a series of performances & installations made for cemeteries, refugee centres, kitchens, churches and theatres.
Since 2015 she has been commissioned by Fuel Theatre for the New Theatre In Your Neighbourhood project, been a contributing story group writer for climate justice project Hello X, created performance as public intervention for Queerly Departed, and presented works in SICK Festival, Queer Migrant Takeover and Works Ahead. Currently, she’s working on ‘Doze’ a chronic-illness centred project exploring rest as resistance. Outside of her artistic practice, Toni facilitates work and practice around care and wellbeing, is Artist Access Assistant with Selina Thompson Ltd, and makes work for children and families as an associate of One Tenth Human
Toni sits on the board for international performance festival Transform.
