Perspective Tour and Workshop with Dr Ian Williams

25 Jul 2024 6-8pm

Wellcome Collection
London NW1 2BE


Join Dr Ian Williams for a tour of our exhibition ‘Jason and the Adventure of 254‘. He is a medical doctor, a published cartoonist and one of the founders of the graphic medicine movement.

Ian went to school in Wakefield, just a mile from Pinderfields Hospital, where Jason Wilsher Mills spent a year of his life – an experience that partly inspired the exhibition. So the cultural references in the exhibition speak loudly to him, both personally and professionally.

In the tour, Ian will share his perspective on how medical training did not teach him about disability theory and how he only learned about it later from the medical humanities and graphic medicine.

After the tour, you can join Ian in a comic-strip-making workshop, in which you can create a comic and have the opportunity to think about the exhibition and your own attitudes towards illness and disability. All materials will be provided in the workshop.
