Living in South East Queensland – a student photography exhibition


From Friday afternoon this week a student photography exhibition will be on display on the ground floor of the Gold Coast campus library.  The exhibition is an assessment item for first year student occupational therapists that has required them to visually demonstrate their theoretical knowledge.  Students have worked in small groups to identify an aspect of the course content and then capture an image that demonstrates their knowledge of occupation.

In occupational therapy, occupation is the term used to refer to all the activities that humans engage in throughout our days and our lives, as individuals and groups or people.  Occupations fill our time, have meaning and purpose, consume our energy and utilise our abilities.  As humans we engage in occupations from birth until death, and our pattern of occupational engagement is unique to each person’s life and experiences.

Come along and visit the exhibition, which will be on display from late afternoon on May 9 until the lunchtime of May 23.  You can also share your thoughts and reactions or ask questions via Twitter @GriffithOT or with the hashtag #1311AHS.
