Project Information

It is estimated that over half of all cancers are preventable through awareness, screening and early detection, however people from Minority Ethnic Communities often do not access cancer screening services due to practical, cultural and educational barriers.



This project sought to use art as a device to overcome some of these challenges. It used participatory arts to engage with targeted minority ethnic communities to raise awareness of cancer prevention and produce creative resources to help promote the messages. NHS Dudley Public Health Department commissioned Walsall Council’s Creative Development Team to deliver the work in the winter of 2010, the work was showcased in the summer of 2011.
