Event Description
Medicament for Your Predicament - LIVE ON THE LINE

Medicament For Your Predicament is an experimental pharmacy offering new approaches to collective and mutual care for our complicated times. Join artist Cat Jones to create homespun solutions to your personal and political ailments, however big or small they might be. Medicament For Your Predicament draws on Cat Jones’ unique botanic, sensory and social practice and her feminist and queer research into the fields of science and medicine, sharing home remedies and recipes that have been passed down through diverse communities across many generations.


Get hands-on in the OPEN LAB! workshops from the comfort of your own home. In an intimate 3.5-hour workshop, Cat will beam into your kitchen and guide you through a series of activities to diagnose the issues that have you most ill at ease. Collectively, you will then create a medicament—using ingredients from your kitchen and a special package of materials sent to you by the artist—that will empower you to take it on. 


Every day at Carriageworks, visit the OPEN PHARMACY! installation, which showcases the medicaments that have been created through the project and offers you quick and dirty prescriptions, amidst the effervescent powder of conversation.
