Exhibitions in hospitals
Works of art breathe life into what can feel like impersonal spaces. The Trust supports the installation of two and three-dimensional art in a range of locations including the General Hospital

and Overdale. It has established a loan scheme with local artists, and it also assisted in the creation of a mural in the hospital’s Accident and Emergency children’s area. Exhibiting artists have

included: Gregory Guida, Anna Le Moine-Gray, Matthieu Falle, Paul John Kilshaw, Billie Newey and Gabrielle Radiguet.


"Art is our one true global language. It knows no nation, it favours no race, and it acknowledges no class. It speaks to our need to reveal, heal, and transform. It transcends our ordinary lives and lets us imagine what is possible."

Richard Kamler, artist and creator of the Seeing Peace Project


The Trust believes that art can help to demystify illness and its treatment. In 2008 we hosted an exhibition of paintings by Susan MacFarlane entitled Living With Leukaemia in which the artist portrayed the body language of patients, relatives and medical staff set against a stark scientific background. It was the success of this exhibition which prompted us to look into commissioning an Artist in Residence.


“Having cancer, or a child with cancer, is divisive and isolating, however loving and supportive your family and friends are. Paintings have the power to act as a bridge between the majority of people who do not have experience of cancer and those who do.”

Elizabeth Hilliard, author of Art and Leukaemia
