[Xmca-l] Re: Children as caregivers art gallery



Greg, nothing to apologize, thanks for sharing! I too am collaborating with an arts-based primary school and the issue of kindness (of being kind) to others (which relates to care) is very salient to the community. I really think that the image of (and the supporting of) children as care givers can help us so much.

Subject: [Xmca-l]  Children as caregivers art gallery

Apologies for the off-topic post, given the various discussions currently
happening, but I wanted to share with you some work that might be of
interest to many on the listserve. This is research from Jean Hunleth
regarding child caregivers in Zambia who are helping care for their parents
afflicted by HIV related tuberculosis.

Of particular interest is an online (Flickr) gallery of 200 photos made by
the children and which she has made available with commentary (both from
her and from the children). See the link below (along with a brief comment
from Jean about how to approach it - note I've also cc'd Jean on this email
in case anyone is interested in contacting her directly - and just briefly,
Jean is an anthropologist and is currently a professor in the Medical
School at Washington University - St. Louis).

Anyway, I thought that this might be of interest to some on the list.

>From Jean:
"Here is the link to my art gallery. There are various ways to view it. I
describe these in the first document Make sure to read the descriptions
under the drawings. I'd love to hear any and all input, including ways I
might improve it."
