We are planning the first Onward Arts staff art exhibition and will be advertising for submissions across the hospital through posters and ecomms. The theme of the exhibition is Emotional Touchstones – we chose this as it’s relevant to everyone working to deliver healthcare professionally and with compassion, and it can be broadly interpreted. We hope you will submit your artwork, no matter the format, so that a wide range of artforms and departments are represented.Â We won’t be installing original artworks for cost and security reasons, so please do send photographs of your artworks. Please send us the highest resolution files you have by We Transfer.
All artworks already submitted to the blog will be considered so there is no need to resubmit your images. Please do let us know if you would rather not be considered (or if there are particular images which you would want to exclude from consideration). We very much look forward to hearing from you and receiving your work.
