Prescriptions and Prose: where medicine and creativity meet

Ōtepoti is Aotearoa’s only UNESCO City of Literature and is home to one of the top medical schools in the country. Is this an unlikely combination, or are there deeper connections between medicine, writing and creativity? Join festival Guest Curator and Rat World founder and editor-in-chief Jennifer Cheuk as she examines this topic with doctor Libby Whittaker and doctors-in-training Olivia Wright and Will Pudney, all of whom are writers. They’ll explore how language and creativity influences medical practice, and what it means to be a creative in the professional world of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths).
