The Somatic Practice and Chronic Pain Network brings together researchers from dance, health and digital design as well as people living with pain to explore chronic pain management. In particular, it focuses on a group of dance and movement approaches called ‘somatic practices‘.
The network is organising events to share knowledge and develop ideas, working with multiple partners to do this. The two main hubs for this Network revolve around Coventry University and Edge Hill University.
The network is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council UK to create a series of small scale events and research exchanges. We aim to grow larger scale research projects and events in future.
