Visual artists Kirsty Stansfield and Jeni Pearson met while working together in a hospice, creatively supporting patients and families living with a life-limiting illness. We found a shared interest in critically engaging with ideas of participation and creativity. Funded by Creative Scotland, Autonomy of Practice provides a period of artistic research and development. This focuses on a creative and embodied exploration of the concept of care and relational autonomy, and its potential to guide and support our artistic participatory practice. This research builds on our ongoing philosophical dialogue with Prof. Ben Colburn around autonomy, creativity and end of life care. / @tracingautonomy
