Being the boyfriend to an often tired and worn out paediatric nurse I'm fully away of the situations that our brilliant nurses go through daily and i know how grateful they are for every little bit of help they receive. Since 2012, Vital Arts has been working with artists and designers to make the Royal London Children’s Hospital feel more welcoming for young visitors. The building’s transformation is now complete, with new works by illustrator Chris Haughton, textiles designer Donna Wilson and toy designers Miller Goodman.
Vital Arts is the arts organisation for Barts Health NHS Trust. Founded in 1996, it aims to improve patient experiences at hospitals by commissioning murals, installations and designs by leading creatives, and running arts participation programmes and workshops.
With five wards and 130 beds, the Royal London Children's Hospital now cares for over 40,000 young people each year, and Vital Arts hopes its collaborations with various creatives will make the prospect of spending a night under its roof a little less daunting.
