Our Creative Director Nicola Benge will be saying a few words at this event, it’s free and celebrates BSUH history. Come along and join us!
Symposium about the history of Royal Sussex County Hospital, ethics in healthcare, and the opportunities for participatory arts practice in health settings.
There will be three speakers at the event, held at Jubilee Library, including:
- Dr Carina Westling, who is co-director of The Nimbus Group, will speak about the history of the hospital, from its inception, through to its current state, including how the hospital’s work with the community has changed, and how healthcare has developed over the 200-year history of the hospital.
- Daniel Locke is an artist and illustrator who has been commissioned to work with the public to create a new artwork for the new Royal Sussex County Hospital. Daniel will talk about working with health workers, patients and the community, and how they have contributed to and inspired new artwork.
- Dr Bobbie Farsides, Chair of Clinical and Biomedical Ethics at the University of Sussex, specialises in research on ante-natal screening and testing, reproductive technologies, palliative care and issues around death and dying, and will talk about how personal and organisational perspectives come together in healthcare ethics.
