How cultural experiences can improve health and wellbeing

Wings and Things

Kate Eggleston-Wirtz is artist-in residence at Trafford General. This project aims to bring joyful energy onto the hospital wards, creatively engaging staff and patients on Wards 2, 4 and 6 by responding to the four seasons using images and objects from the Whitworth Art Gallery and Manchester Museum, University of Manchester. A change from the clinical to the creative, and a chance to connect, be active, learn, and give.
