Dr Matthew Lariviere talks about the Sheffield Carescapes exhibition and his work on the future of care technologies and practices.
Care is in crisis. Austerity and staff shortages have placed increased burden on the care system. COVID-19 has placed further pressure on individuals, families and the care workforce.
The exhibition is a provocation to think about how we can support each other in Sheffield and as a society.
Drawing on recent research from Dr Matthew Lariviere, Centre for International Research on Care, Labour & Equalities (CIRCLE), on care; Akeem Balogun, Kate Morgan and Rob Richardson produced an audio-visual collection of ‘carescapes’, immersive stories and illustrations to evoke potential near and distant futures of a society focused on care and empathy.
The exhibition is situated in Futurecade and is available to view online.
