I’m thrilled to be amongst the next team of artists to work with Hospital Rooms.
‘Hospital Rooms is delighted to launch a new project with Eileen Skellern 1, a Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) for women at the Maudsley Hospital in SouthLondon and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, on World Mental Health Day, 10th October 2017.
Our participating artists will include Paresha Amin, Aimee Mullins, Harold Offeh, Nengi Omuku, Tamsin Relly and Tim A Shaw.
This project is funded by Arts Council England, and through the generosity of Sebastian Moncrieff Qc, Hospital Rooms friends and donors. Big thanks also to all the artists who donated to the #PIYpaintlounge fundraiser, and to all the people doing climbs and runs to raise money for this project! We are also grateful to Colart who will supply high quality artist materials for the project through their brand Liquitex Artist Materials.
“We are really excited to be working with Hospital Rooms and a team of leading artists. Psychiatric Intensive Care Units support patients at a time when they are acutely unwell and at their most vulnerable. The experience of patients and staff in these units is hugely affected by the aesthetic and design of the physical environment. This innovative project will bring together patients, clinicians and artists to co-produce museum quality artwork. Using the power of art to empower women in mental health crises and promote recovery will lead to a sustained positive change in the way we care for our patients.”
