Full Project Description:
Through consultation with people who use the space – patients and staff – we will investigate the circumstances and dynamics that shape the experience of being on the unit. We will analyse participants’ wants and needs, examining how these might be met by art or design interventions. We will look at which creative activities foster a sense of community and how they do so. We will seek processes and outcomes that impact positively on the space; those which engage, stimulate and uplift and continue to inspire patients over multiple visits.
The Report summarising our findings will inform an Artists Brief and provide a framework for future consultation, participation programmes and public art commissions.
