Unique art exhibition by siblings of young patients at Noah's Ark Hospice in High Barnet goes on display at Artsdepot
An exhibition of artwork created by siblings of children with life-threatening and life-limiting illnesses has gone on display in North Finchley.
Twelve brothers and sisters of patients at Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice worked with Artsdepot photographer Miriam Baez to create the exhibition.
The children, aged between 11 and 18, explored the theme ‘my world’ using photographs taken around the artsdepot, in Tally Ho Corner, before placing them inside lanterns representing a globe.
The exhibition is part of Start Hospices Project created by HRH The Prince of Wales' charity, The Prince’s Foundation for Children & the Arts.
Noah’s Ark is planning to display the art work at its new hospice currently being built in High Barnet.
Before then, the pieces will be on display at the Artsdepot until Thursday, September 5.
Vicky Bell, participation manager at the Artsdepot, said: "It has been a pleasure to welcome Noah’s Ark families to Artsdepot.
“It is always rewarding to see families creating happy shared memories and this programme highlights the importance of this.
“It has been particularly inspiring to see the sibling groups working with our artists to create artwork that will go on to have a genuine legacy in Noah’s Ark’s new building, helping to make it a more friendly and colourful place for the families who will receive support there."
