Our Artist in residence, Edwina Bridgeman works in groups and one-to-one at children’s bedsides. Activities are designed to be easy to dip in and out of. Children often start workshops shy and unsure but leave with huge smiles and an enormous sense of achievement. Inevitably this makes the whole ward a happier place.
The children’s work can be taken home, shown to clinical staff or be installed in the public Artsparks gallery in Zone B which reaches an audience of 22,000 people per year.
“It was fantastic. My son perked up in a way that no medicine can do. Edwina had such a great range of materials; the hospital turned into heaven in minutes!” Parent
