Victor Salvi Room, Wales Millennium Centre
A workshop investigating the intricate structure of the human skeleton through drawing.
Anatomy is at the heart of medical education. Can drawing open our eyes to the beauty and intrigue of the body? Could this way of looking at the body not only complement scientific knowledge but also improve it?
Explore how drawing can be used to look at, make sense of, memorize and explain to others the principal anatomical structures of the human body. This workshop will concentrate on drawing the skeleton.

Get to grips with the anatomy of the head and neck in this wax modeling workshop.
The use of wax for replicating skin, flesh and the complexities of anatomical structures dates back several centuries; its fleshlike translucency makes it the material of choice for eerie and morbid depictions of the human body.
In this workshop Eleanor will explain the anatomy of the head and neck by demonstrating the technique of wax modeling . You will use a selection of waxes to sculpt the anatomy of the head and neck over a model skull. You will be initiated into the art of manipulating different textures of wax into fine anatomical structures – tendons, veins, skin – and shown images of historical examples from European anatomy museums. Materials will be provided.Book tickets

Investigate the voice and breathing apparatus with medics and artists in the simulation suites at Cardiff medical school.
SESSION 1 Led by Tracey Wilkinson
THE ANATOMY OF THE VOICE
Using anatomical models and specimens, anatomist Tracy Wilkinson will introduce participants to the vocal apparatus.
This session will give participants an intimate look at the anatomy of the structures that enable humans to produce sound. Using video, anatomical models and real anatomy specimens, participants will be able to explore the vocal apparatus, see the size and shape of actual vocal cords, and watch the cords in action as sound is produced.
SESSION 2 Led by Judith Hall
SIMULATION: TREATING PATIENTS WITH BREATHING PROBLEMS
Modern medical teaching uses high fidelity patient simulators to mock up life-threatening problems that patients suffer. The attendees at this seminar will view the management of an acute medical emergency effecting the breathing system: the lungs and throat. Participants will learn about anatomical connections between the mouth, throat, lungs and heart: how these can go wrong, and how doctors can make very serious situations, very rapidly better.
SESSION 3 - HOW TO USE YOUR VOICE Led by WNO singer Ros Evans
This practical sessions will give people a basic understanding of how to use their voice more effectively.
A team of Illustration students from Cardiff School of Art & Design, with tutor Chris Glynn, will also be recording the Inside Information event through drawing, attempting to represent visible and hidden information along the way. We'll be musing on relationships between how things look and what they do, the spectacle of medical learning, and tensions between the clinical image and lived experience, as a basis for further projects and talks.Book tickets
