This is the fifth in a series of exhibitions with the title My Health Story. The aim of the exhibition is to examine a variety of perspectives of the relationship between art and wellbeing.

The making and sharing of art allows us to tell our story — which can be all the more significant if we find ourselves in a situation where we might not otherwise be heard or understood. It can also function as a way of validating our existence, documenting our challenges, and providing a legacy.

Art provides an insight into the experience of others and creates a place of understanding and healing. Creating and appreciating art encourages us to slow down and take stock of where we are and listen to the voices within us. In some cases this action can build resilience and aid recovery. We thank the participating artists and supporters for sharing their work and their stories.
“We are mortal beings – fragile, finite creatures with some meaning attached to us. The arts tell us this truth very starkly and hold important questions for us against the hubris of science and ostensible progress”. Dr Sam Guglani, consultant oncologist Creative Health: The Arts for Health and Wellbeing.
