The feeling of a stranger washing your hair. Or putting their hand to the place where the pain is. The physical intimacies of medical, therapeutic or beauty treatments can be tiny moments of pleasure, awkwardness, relief or discomfort in our everyday lives.
What is it that makes those experiences so particular? And what if we could create similar experiences in a different setting?
Join us in the FOR PLAY gallery for a discussion and creative workshop on physical touch and the intimacy of professional treatments, exploring psychological, neuroscientific and personal perspectives. With Vanya Eccles and Joan Somers Donnelly.
