How cultural experiences can improve health and wellbeing

Alan Birch

Alan Birch is based Prospect Studios in Waterfoot, Lancashire. Alan works predominantly in print but also works with other media including drawing, metal and digital images. He frequently makes humorous comments and observations often reflecting his personal view of the contemporary world.

Alan is also a committed educator running regular print workshops in his studio, in schools and galleries. As part of Culture Shots 2016 Alan is in residence in a number of Manchester hospitals. During Culture Shots he will be displaying prints of his humorous later-day saints which reflect individuals’ obsession with contemporary technology, fashion and consumerism. Alan will also be helping staff, patients and visitors to create their own prints.

Since January he has worked in Accrington Academy, Oulder Hill Community School and with members of the African Caribbean Carers Group in Hulme, Manchester Hospitals as well as running regular workshops in the Whitworth Art Gallery and Touchstones for families, primary, secondary and adult groups.
