St Giles Hospice Arts into Health Project was delivered in partnership with Walsall Creative Development Team over a six month period. Writing workshops focused on engaging hospice patients, staff and volunteers in creative activity, asking them to share and reflect upon memories and places of significance.
Sessions inspired artists Dominic Pote and Peter Tinkler to create photographic images and illustrations for the book while I documented all the sessions.
The book, ‘Being Here’ was launched during Dying Matters week 2014. As well as sharing the poetry and images, the book is a record of the creative process, showing how hospices can be places of artistic excellence, nurturing and stimulating creativity.
