This September, Clod Ensemble and Performing Medicine open our studios to share how we’ve worked with artists and health professionals during the pandemic.
Responding to needs identified through a series of interviews with staff at Guy’s & St Thomas’ Foundation Trust (GSTT), University College Hospital London, Swansea Bay Health Board and Queen Mary University of London Faculty of Medicine, a team of artists have been offering short appointments to NHS staff and students during their working day – supporting ways to connect with ourselves, each other and our environment through extraordinary times. Read more about the project in this blog post.
Over two days we will be sharing this work in Clod Ensemble’s beautiful new premises designed by Mole Architects.
Part of Clod Ensemble Open.
