The Culture and Bodies team.

What is Cultures and Bodies? We are a team of scientists, researchers and artists who work with local communities in Malawi and Tanzania to explore how we can use community arts to prevent non-communicable diseases such as high blood pressure, heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

The project allows researchers from medical and social sciences, and arts and humanities in the UK, Malawi and Tanzania to work closely with non-governmental, arts and community organisations to develop unique inter-disciplinary knowledge, understanding, skills and methods. These will be used to inform non-communicable disease prevention initiatives in Malawi and Tanzania.
