"Footnotes On Life"

By Kate Fox Robinson

Saturday 4th May, 10am- 11.15am (BST).

Presenter: Kate Fox Robinson


"Footnotes On Life" With Kate Fox Robinson

We will join one another in taking a step back and observing what is in the footnotes. Which aspects of life and death are so delicate that they are kept to the footnotes? How might words and the art and act of writing capture these moments so they are not hidden or forgotten?

Kate will bring examples of work with individuals and groups including staff, patients and families from her work in the NHS and the range of life moments captured in that chapter.

Our time together will form of poems, examples of joining the written word with other tangible acts, noticing how each enhances the other so therein contains the possibility of connection and meaning. Expect a thoughtful time with opportunity for your own creative writing and reflections, music, images and if you feel able, to bring along a poem which has been there for you in a moment of crisis, and if you happen to have one in the house, an apple.

 How do you join this workshop?

This workshop is free for all Lapidus Members. You can find the link on the LLRC Facebook group, in the Lapidus Newsletter, or in the Lapidus Members area on the website.

About the Presenter:

Kate has had a squiggly career to date encompassing youth and community work, sibling support work in a children’s hospice, chaplaincy and bereavement work in mental health services & acute hospitals, learning disability support work and student support in further and higher education. These roles have spanned the charity, healthcare and education sectors.

Kate’s Masters research explored spiritual care for children with complex needs and their families throughout palliative care. Writing has been a common thread across her work and her approach has adapted accordingly to the role and setting. Kate started to write in March 2020 and her blog chronicles impact of the pandemic and beyond. Latterly, Kate has begun to engage in writers groups, poetry events and making connections and is enjoying discovering the breadth of work that is taking place.
