Podcast: Identity and Culture in Social Work (What is Culture?)

'Culture' means so many different things and can be quite intimidating as a term. In social care, ‘culture’ often refers to cultural identity e.g. ethnicity and gender. Here we talk about culture in terms of creativity and the things we produce as we live our lives: cooking, sewing, rapping, painting.

Youth Offending workers Lonnie Robinson and Nelly Henshaw, artist and social worker Marley Starskey Butler and artist Paul Crook discuss how our creativity emerges in our professional work and how these cultural interests can be used as tools in our work with people in social care. The podcast was created by artist Hannah Kemp-Welch.
