Exploring images of care giving through art

All of us, at some stage in our lives will be care-givers. We will care in a particular way, because of the people we care for, the context we are in and the person we are with the experience we bring. The day will hope to explore your own approach to care giving in the light of three classical images of care: the Shepherd, the Wounded Healer and the Wise Fool along with  contemporary images of care such as the Midwife, the Indigenous Storyteller and the Gardener. To help us in our discussions we will explore what theologians and spiritual writers have said about these images alongside interpretations of care found in the visual arts.
