I don't get to go to Sligo too often so I was delighted to be asked to this event to do live graphic recording for a large group of podiatrists. I had to do my homework on this one in advance as there were some very technical presentations. I learned a lot of about Hallux valgus, plantar fasciopathy and skeletal drivers! Mental Note: get orthotics. Podiatrists are amazing!
This was both an academic and very practitioner-led conference focusing on future directions for child protection and social care in Ireland. It included some very hard-hitting data and passionate appeals for more investment.
I was graphic recording on A0 foam core boards, to which I am becoming more and more accustomed. Great for when there are no suitable walls, also very durable if the client wants to continue displaying the graphic recording post-event.
This conference was a not-for-profit event and a partnership between the School of Applied Social Studies (UCC), staff from child protection and welfare teams in the Child and Family Agency and the IASW Southern Branch.
