Stacey Heale: Right Now, It's Like This

  • Hampshire Records Office Sussex Street Winchester, England, SO23 8TH United Kingdom (map)


Join Stacey Heale as she discusses the use of photography to document the diagnosis and treatment of stage IV cancer within a young family, particularly focusing on the ideas of authenticity, vulnerability and family legacy.

This talk has been organised by Wire Wool Events especially for Winchester Heritage Open Days.

Stacey Heale is a fashion academic who became a full time carer when her partner Greg was diagnosed with inoperable stage IV bowel cancer at the age of 39. She created the website Beneath the Weather as a space for herself and others to discuss difficult topics honestly through word and image and writes a weekly column Postcards from the Storm for the Southern Daily Echo about her experiences. Stacey is also a spokesperson for Bowel Cancer UK and part of the F**k Cancer Club, a group of women giving support and a voice to those effected by cancer at a young age. Her talk will discuss using photography to document family legacy.

Please note the room where the talk is being held is only accessible via stairs or a lift. Since the lift cannot be used in an emergency, evacuation of less able visitors in an emergency is down the stairs via an evacuation chair. Hampshire Record Office ask that we notify them advance of the presence of anyone using a wheelchair or with access issues likely to require use of an evacuation chair in an emergency. Please select 'accessible ticket' if you feel this could be you.
