    A ResCen symposium curated by Rosemary Lee in association with Martin Welton (Queen Mary University of London)

This symposium brought together an exciting range of presenters and guests from different disciplines to share their responses to and understanding of the notion of care within their specific contexts. This included spoken presentation, films, installations, and live works.

Originating from Rosemary Lee's reflections on her cross-generational work Common Dance (2009), this event simultaneously marked the launch of a new DVD published by ResCen. Also entitled On Taking Care, this DVD reveals and explore the themes and processes behind the making of Common Dance. Extracts of this DVD were presented and a film of Common Dance was also screened at the symposium.

Contributors included Anne-Marie Rafferty, Professor of Nursing Policy at the Florence Nightingale School of Nursing and Midwifery at King's College London; Jane Wiffin, Freelance Social Care Consultant; Joe Smith, Senior Lecturer in Environment at Open University; Raymond Tallis, Physician and Writer; Artists, Chris Goode, Graeme Miller, Florence Peake, Miranda Tufnell, Jo Bannon, Rachel Gomme and Marcus Coates.
