Health and Wellbeing

Artists Alan Birch and Lucy Burscough worked with patients from the Adult Acute Care Ward in Manchester Hospital, working on memories from Belle Vue Zoological Gardens. Patients told of their memories of happy times spent at the attraction. One patient even told of the time the wrestler Big Daddy drank in their local pub! From these memories Alan worked on prints with the patients and family visitors and Lucy produced a series of paintings. These paintings and digital images from the prints were displayed in the communal area on the ward.
