Art show aims to explore patients’ experiences

Friday, August 1, 2014

An art show seeks to share and explore the experiences of patients in the Brighton & Sussex University Hospitals in the UK. The artist, Nicola Streeten, describes the project as her “art telling someone else’s story.” Victoria Hamer is one of the patients whose story is told in the show. Treated long-distance through “telemedicine,” Hamer had to relearn how to speak, walk, and write following a stroke. The show is called Stories from Front Line, and is being displayed in Brighton’s Jubilee Square as part of the Brighton Science Festival. According to The Latest TV, producers of the video below, the exhibition is “aimed to illuminate the personal and ethical issues of illness and healthcare through individual’s experiences.” This video may begin with a commercial which was not chosen by or for the benefit of DisAbility Rights Galaxy.
