Young people's wellbeing and self-care practices: a narrative and go-along inquiry of youth activities

Part of the GGE Seminar Series
A talk by Tamsin Fisher, Postgraduate Research Student at Keele University

This research has been designed to understand how young people are crafting time and space to engage with self-care practices, predominantly textile crafts. Through participant observation this research has begun to develop an understanding of the role of organisations in supporting and developing accessible spaces for self-care, and most importantly, supporting individuals through the challenges that learning a new skill often brings. I will begin to challenge some of the normative perceptions of how people achieve well-being through self-care practices and how activities are marketed for self-care.
