Exploring Your Subconscious

Exploring Your Subconscious

Lunchtime Talks at the Pervasive Media Studio


Please note: This event took place in Feb 2019

Lunchtime Talks are a series of informal presentations at Watershed's Pervasive Media Studio. They normally take place at 13:00 on a Friday, are free and are open to everybody who is interested in what they do. Come along, bring a sandwich, and get to know more about the Studio community, current and up-coming projects, or residents' work.

In this Lunchtime Talk '24 Most Influential Bristolians Under 24' nominee Yasmin Joan Qureshi will be introducing her new workshop series from her project 'Red Telephone' and how they interlink with her own creative practise.

Utilising Donald W Winnicott's therapeutic technique Squiggle drawing, the workshops explore the subconscious and focusing on a specific experience conflicting the mind and coming to terms with that through drawing. With the help of 3D printing expert Dan Melville, we will be exploring the drawing as an object and the further meaning and significance it offers to the individuals taking part.

Joining Yasmin at the talk will be co facilitator and BACP accredited Psychoanalytical psychotherapist Karin Qureshi to further discuss this new use of Winnicottian theories and techniques through creative workshops and open the discussion of exploring new ways in making therapy more accessible.

This Lunchtime Talk is part of Open Studio Friday, which takes place at the Studio every week.
