Brain Tingles/Body Soft is a mixed media exhibition by Courtney Askey and Nancy Dawkins commissioned for Forgotten Futures. The interdisciplinary exhibition explores self-care and ASMR (The Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response).

Nancy Dawkins is a Sheffield/Leicester based writer, musician and performer who is the founder of online poetry community, CREATION:Poetry. Dawkins’ work looks at the body/mind connection self-care through the lens of sickness.
