Hospital Activities Programme
April - June 2018

Introduction to Programme

It’s Spring! The end of a long winter and also the end of an era for Artlink exhibitions!
From April 2018 we will be concentrating on the participation side of our programme
and a new organisation will be taking over the exhibitions.

Over the past month there have been a number of exhibitions in the gallery spaces
dedicated to showing the results from the commissions undertaken by emergent artists. As
from April 1st we will be relocating some of these artworks to other sites
within the hospital and the local community.

This programme is a direct response to your recent feedback


on our winter activities programme. In response to the needs
of people on long stay elderly care wards, we will be
extending our events programme and creating weekly
performance events. We are also investigating
new work which better supports patients as they
move from the hospital to the community, so look
out for Anne Elliot's new activities which are all about
encouraging greater community involvement.

You told us that performers should get to know each hospital


and the people in it, so we have allocated a smaller number
of performers to each hospital for a period of three months
working on the wards and entertaining in the public spaces. It will
be interesting to
see how this programme develops. Would you let us know how it works

for you? Artworks produced within workshops will be shown in sites that are closer to
the people who made them. Bespoke frames have now been installed in all REH wards,
where patient work from Vanessa’s watercolour workshops will be curated by patients
and staff and displayed in the frames. Work made during the commissioning of emergent

artists has moved from the galleries to sites in the


community. There is a small offsite show of work in the
Orchard Centre in Bonnyrigg, a personal and intimate
by-product of the Staff and Patient Open Show.

Hospital Quilt, Westeen General, 2011


In the meantime, we would like to look back at some
past exhibitions in appreciation of all the amazing artists
and curators who have been involved in our exhibitions
over the years. There have been so many exhibitions from
open shows to individual artists, from portraits of staff,
to artwork relating to health. A couple of exhibitions
stick in our memories: Gary Burden's sculptures and
the obvious pleasure he took in making such beautiful objects; Jeanette Bell's Knitting
Bee and the beautiful photographs of
the knitted tepees on Arthur’s Seat;
Frances Priest working with patterns
created alongside patients and staff (the
patterns spilled out from the gallery,
onto porters' trolleys, the backs of
wheelchairs, over tea cups and plates in
the café at St John's); Frances Priest and
Fran Nobilucci painting a huge Coat of
Gary Burden, Royal Edinburgh Hospital, 2017 Arms at the Western; right through to the
Crafty Lunches exhibitions which created a whole
network of lunchtime workshops for staff and informed Anthony Schrag’s most recent
work with the OTs at St John's.
'I always liked the banter you got from people during
exhibition changeovers; spending time in the galleries was the
best way to engage people in the shows.'

It's something you said
This is a roundabout way of saying we have valued every contribution to the Artlink
galleries over the years and would like to thank everyone who has taken part. We would
especially like to thank Kirsty MacDonald, Galleries Manager for all her work over
the years and Grace Johnston, Galleries Manager (maternity cover) for the last year.
We wish the new organisation taking over the galleries all the best in undertaking this
work.

We hope you enjoy the programme for the next three months and we really appreciate
any feedback you can give us in relation to the workshops and events as well as the
accessibility of the programme.

Thank you.

Something You Said


Introduction

Within St John’s we go out of our way to maintain invaluable links to the wider
community. We have a wide network of local organisations who have entertained,
exhibited and taken part in some of the activities. Emphasis on community is
particularly relevant to patients on mental health wards. By working closely with
patients we get to hear their interests and can, where relevant, begin to make
interesting links for them to local groups and organisations.

Our events programme led by Miss Annabel Sings is about getting people to join
in, to alleviate some of the daily stress, even if it’s just for a few minutes at a time.
The performances are open to anyone on the ward.

'This is better than the TV, can you come


in every week?' said a patient on Ward
3. Staff on wards are always really busy
but this comment sums up beautifully what
happens on the general wards as part of the
performance programme, 'I’m liking what
I hear' was another comment from staff on
Ward 17 as they gathered to watch Cera
Impala, after moving from their station to
listen more closely to the performance.

In a change to how we programme, expect


to see the same performers on wards over
the next few months, allowing them to get to
know you and for you to get to know them.
It also makes it possible for you to make
Fabric works, Nadia Rossi & Anne Elliot workshop suggestions as to what they should play or
sing, so you can hear new versions of your
favourite tunes.

St John’s

Within workshop activity, we have concentrated on Pentland Court, a short-term,


supported living resource at St John's Hospital. Artists Nadia Rossi and Anne
Elliot have been working with individuals over the last 3 months. Nadia was
commissioned by Artlink to explore collaborations with mental health and
community projects. Based in the living room of one of the flats, they spent time
getting to know residents through making fabric banners.

'As people came and went at Pentland Court, our time became more focused,
working in collaboration with Anne and the residents. They began to shape the
aesthetic of the fabric works with a much looser and freer approach to making.
Led by them, the work became banners centred around text, with collaging and
overlapping that focused on shape and colour.' Nadia Rossi.

Anne and Nadia have also begun to make practical links to Leylines, a communi-
ty-based arts group in West Lothian. Many of those involved in Leylines have spent
time at Pentland Court before moving back into the community.

The exhibition in St. John’s


Gallery finished at the end
of March, but aspects of the
exhibition will be adapted for
display in Pentland Court.

The Variety Hour


Scotland has a fantastic history of variety artists and that shows no signs of
changing as variety remains one of the UK’s most well-loved forms of entertainment
in clubs, pubs, theatre and on TV. Every quarter we will be celebrating one of the
best variety artists on the scene right now. This time round it is the brilliant Paul
Novak. A fabulously funny close-up magician with a depth of knowledge of the
history of magic, look out for him doing close-up magic at St John's in June.

ESCAPISM
Introduction

In the Western General we will provide a weekly programme of activities on elderly


care wards exploring how regular participation in the arts can support staff and
families. This is an exciting development in our work and will see us begin to set up
meetings, performance & workshop events for patients and staff, aimed at lifting
morale and encouraging creative thinking.

The Hospital Arts programme is best described by someone who has taken part in
the activities. It quite simply illustrates impact. ‘The people who are still in their rooms
don’t know what they are missing. I have been lucky enough to have heard many
great voices over the years (this very frail and elderly man had been telling a story
of seeing a famous opera singer at the Usher Hall in the 50s) and now I am lucky
enough to have heard you. Thank you; I didn’t expect to be treated to this.’ 

Miss Annabel Sings, a performer and coordinator of the Artlink events programme,
talks of the work's impact, 'Watching Bruce Davies singing to the group today, the
staff were gathering outside to watch, hugging as the music made one nurse quite
emotional. Patients were laughing and singing along. Staff came in at the end to say
how great this is for all of them as well as the patients. It’s an uplifting treat.'

For her own contribution to the Open Show,


commissioned artist Laura focused on stories of
patients involved in bird watching, who created an
extensive list of birds and collected images from
cards. Laura then made a series of illustrations,
after keeping notes of birds she saw on trips to
the hospitals in recent months, encountering the
blackbird most frequently. 12 bird illustrations
acted to visually link all the works in the Open
Show together. Cards made by Tracey, OT, working in

The Open Show finished in the

offshoot of the exhibition has been
Laura’s collaboration with SJ, a
local artist who makes work about
emotional wellbeing. Laura began
making work in response to SJ’s
atmospheric photos and her music
play list.

The Orchard Centre in Bonnyrigg was


selected to show their work, as SJ felt
that a service dedicated to supporting
people with mental health issues would
be appreciative of her artwork. They are!

Armed with her banjo, guitar and a voice that sends shivers down the spine, Cera
Impala is visiting the wards in the Royal Victoria building at the Western General
over the next three months to entertain and explore our passion for song. This
Edinburgh-based folk musician will get your toes a-tapping to songs old and new
as well as trying out some songwriting with you. As Cera will be with wards 70, 71,
72 and 73 several times over this quarter she will be happy to take requests on her
first visit for her next trip to the wards.

What the hand knows the hand does


Introduction

In addition to a regular programme of events and performances on hospital


wards and in public space, Miss Annabel Sings has been running regular singing
and reminiscence sessions in the Activity Room Ward 201. These sessions have
been so successful that we will be extending this work across other wards in
collaboration with hospital activity coordinators. Activity Co-ordinator: 'I bet you
forgot you were in the hospital?' Patient: 'I did! These memories are wonderful.'

Did you know that Artlink volunteer and poet Elaine Gallagher has been
visiting Ward 202 for many years, giving bedside readings to patients? Elaine
is continuing to put on a series of events called A Book and a Blether as part of
the overall programme over the next three months. Watch out for her in our next
quarter as our Variety Hour artist!

Within the Royal Infirmary we merged workshops and exhibitions as part of the
commissioning programme for emergent artists. The commissions offered artists at
the beginning of their career the opportunity to learn from artists who have many
years of experience within art and care. In the initial stages of her commission,
artist Hannah Imlach was paired with artists who work with people with higher
support needs.

Hannah then worked alongside artist James McLardy and activities co-ordinator
Carey Moss with stroke patients from wards 201 and 101. Patients began with
activities such as weaving, pushing objects like shells and pine needles into wet
clay to create surface textures as well as threading dry clay forms, bead-like onto
loops of cord.  

It's something
18 you said
Royal Infirmary

The communal activity of the group encouraged conversation and banter. The
relationships developed by participants during the early workshops created a
space where people felt comfortable to talk about their individual experiences of
stroke and their path to recovery.

Workshops became centred around these conversations and prompted the


question, ‘What it is for the hand to touch or be touched by something?’ Led by
patients' personal experiences of regaining the use of their hands after a stroke, the
workshop activity was pared right back. It became about how the deliberate act of
gripping changed a small piece of clay held in the palm of the hand.

'When you are in control of your good limb


you don’t need to think about it, but with
your weak hand it’s all about trying to think
hard to gain control.' Jack

'It’s empowering, in the contrast with the not


so empowered hand.' The right hand 'can
express my feelings of aggression' in the
clay, 'I can do it!' Della

Art from the Wards


Introduction

As the hospital changes and begins to support patients with higher support needs,
Artlink has put greater emphasis on working on wards in order to meet new people
and find the best ways to work with them. Expect to see some interesting work
when we introduce person-centred workshop activity for people with advanced
dementia. We will start to make links
with our work in other dementia units,
exploring the potential of workshops
for staff and patients as a way of
relieving some of the stress.

Mix Up, a local youth theatre group,
will be working with Miss Annabel
Sings on some of the wards. We think this is a great way to get young people
involved in the hospital community. Anne Elliot and Miss Annabel Sings will
be running a programme of workshops across all the wards in the hospital. The
theme is Summer Camp, with Anne and Annabel putting on films, workshops and
culminating in a Butlins-themed event in August to bring everyone together.

To try out ways of working that support


people moving from the hospital into the
community, Anne Elliot will be working
with members of the Tuesday open project
and Curious Routes (an Artlink community
project). This women’s group will make

Marcus Oakley continues to work with Merchiston on creating colour field vinyls
for the window in the ward’s communal spaces.

Artist Vanessa Lawrence is just about to finish an


intensive project in which painting workshops took
place on 10 wards. This project was inspired by the
recent move into the new building and the success
of Vanessa’s previous workshops (and an idea put
in place by Becky Brazil to provide every ward with
bespoke hinged frames for communal areas). This
enables the wards to curate a changing programme
of artworks produced by patients on their ward.

paper, the artists worked without a common


theme, choosing what they would like to paint
for themselves. The responses are diverse and
imaginative, ranging from first hand experience such as playing an instrument as
part of a band, to depictions of landscapes, as well as close studies of objects that
were brought along by Vanessa.

Each ward was invited to select a single painting from their ward workshop. The
12 works were then framed and put on exhibition in the REH gallery. The wards
that participated were: Hermitage, Fairmile, Canaan, Eden, Harlaw, Blackford,
Meadows, Balcarres, Craiglockhart, Merchiston and the Robert Fergusson Unit.

The exhibition finished at the end of March and the framed works went back to their
respective wards.
