Hospital Activities Programme


St Johns, Western General,
Royal Infirmary and Royal Edinburgh

January - March 2018


Hospital Activities Programme
January - March 2018

Introduction to Programme

Working together with artists, staff, patients and families is an important part
of our work in Hospitals. It informs all that we do. In this programme we will
highlight the benefits of working together, illustrating how sharing ideas and
creative skills lifts morale and creates a more positive sense of community.

Within each hospital we establish social spaces where involvement in cultural


activity brings people together around a shared interest in a performance,
an exhibition or a workshop. As well as working with Senior Charge Nurses
and Occupational Therapists, this work has been further enhanced with the
appointment of activity coordinators within some of the hospitals. This enables
us to work with key people within each hospital as well as working in spaces
within wards.

In November 2017 we exhibited work in ‘Common Play: Making Things


Happen’ at the Tent Gallery, Edinburgh College of Art. The exhibition brought
together three Artlink mental health programmes – The Glasshouses at the
Royal Edinburgh Hospital, Leylines in West Lothian and Curious Routes in
Edinburgh. The exhibition encouraged audiences to take part in a series
of drop-in events led by people with mental health problems. It was a real
success!

Artlink have commissioned three early career artists to make new work
within the context of health and care. Each artist will be mentored by an
experienced artist within one of three areas - mental health and community;
dementia and high support needs; staff & patients. The results from these
commissions will be on show at St Johns, the Western General and the Royal
Infirmary from February 2018. There is more information on these commissions
in each of the hospital sections.

Staff & Patient Show – Looking for Collaborators

Have you shown work in past staff and patient exhibitions? Would you like to help
shape how the 2018 staff and patient show looks? Would you like to work with an
illustrator? Have you an interest in the history of your hospital?

Laura Cave-Magowan is an illustrator based in East Lothian. She is fascinated


by narratives and has been visiting Lothian Health Services Archive to unearth
personal and interesting stories from its vast historical collection. Laura has been
commissioned to collaborate with staff and patients who have an interest in making
artworks to work with her around some of the ideas emerging from her research.
This is a different approach to the annual Open Show and an opportunity for some
people to become really involved in the process.

Laura is “very excited by the opportunity to engage with staff and patients,
exploring different narratives and discovering a common thread”.

As part of this new approach, we will experiment with where we show the work,
placing it within spaces that have a relevance to the artworks produced – i.e. we
may show work relating to the history of care on wards, work related to historical
figures in department offices or even put on community events in public spaces.

So if you like painting, drawing or crafts please get in touch with Grace by
emailing grace@artlinkedinburgh.co.uk to contribute to the exhibition which is
planned for the end of February 2018.

You will notice a change in the layout of this programme; we have tried to reduce

The Glasgow Swing Dance Society performing in the Coffee Lounge

Public space events have been working well at St John’s and after a year of trying
out different spaces for public performance, you have decided that the coffee
lounge is the perfect spot!

We continue to provide opportunities for distraction and entertainment on the


wards, made all the easier by the support of Occupational Therapists and Phys-
iotherapists on Ward 17, Ward 3 and Pentland Court. Over the past two months
we have added another element to the programme by placing a dancer on these
wards. Feedback has been really positive; the staff have been taken aback at the
patients reaction to the workshops, with one staff member commenting, “I have
never seen the patients move this much!”

Work resulting from this commission will be shown at St Johns. We are keen to
show this work in contexts and situations that are relevant to the people that Nadia
will be collaborating with. So, look out for the work in the grounds of the hospital,
in community halls or on your ward.

Movement: Amongst Other Things


Exhibition

As part of the wider exhibition programme, Amongst Other Things, artist Anthony
Schrag has been working with a dedicated group of Occupational Therapists (OTs)
at the Western General.

In a series of lunch time workshops, OTs identified that there was a limited
understanding of their profession within the hospital as well as more generally. As
participant Tracey suggested: “No one would know what an OT does unless they
actually needed them.”

The project started from the idea that movement is a ‘non-conventional way of
communication’, and explored how it can be used creatively to express and
communicate what an OT does, and who they are. Through drawing, sculpture,
photography, choreography and writing, the group identified 5 key movements
that they regularly use within their work: measuring, investigating, observing,
listening and empowering.

Movement: Amongst Other Things (cont.)


Exhibition

OTs work in partnership with others within the hospital and they wanted to
emphasise just how important these relationships are within their work. They
identified key departments in WGH with whom they work closely – Physiotherapy,
Social Work, The Discharge Hub, Administrative Staff & other OTs – and matched
these departments with each of the 5 movements. For example, both OTs and
Physiotherapists are required to measure patients’ reactions and responses within
their work. They then presented each partner with a particular ‘gift’ relating to these
actions.

“These workshops have given us a great team-building experience. We’ve been


able to laugh at ourselves, admire the artistic and creative sides of each other, and
reflect on our profession together, and it’s all resulted in us feeling closer as a team.
This obviously contributes to a much more pleasant working environment, and
working together.”

Outcomes arising from these workshops are now on show in the Western
General Gallery. Choreographer Christina Liddell took each of these actions and
developed them into a dance, and illustrator Marcus Oakley took inspiration from
original sketches of the actions made by the OT’s. The work will be on exhibition
over the coming months.

Royal Infirmary

It has been great working with the newly-appointed Activity Coordinator


Carey Moss at the Royal Infirmary. There is now a designated activity space
which we use on a regular basis, leading singing and reminiscing sessions
with patients from the wards. Support from the activity coordinator as well as
use of this new space has resulted in higher uptake, meaning that even more
patients are benefitting from involvement in activities.

Artist James McLardy will also be working on ward 201 in the new year. Over
the past few years, James has been working on dementia wards at the Royal
Edinburgh Hospital developing some pretty exciting collaborative practices
with family, patients and staff. His plan is to extend this work to wards on the
NRI, with support from the new activities coordinator.

We have also established a mentored commission for early career artist


Hannah Imlach. Hannah is a visual artist based in Glasgow who creates
sculptures inspired by environmental research. She will work alongside James
McLardy on wards and with artists who create sensory based work with
people with high support needs. We asked Hannah what her expectations
were and she responded, “I am struck by the simultaneous sensitivity and
boldness of each artist’s approach, all are unified by a responsiveness to
the language, gesture and experiences of each individual they work with.
In relation to my own practice, I am particularly interested in learning about
projects where the artist uses creative processes as a catalyst for building
relationships, generating mutual learning and promoting self-expression."
