The impact of the pandemic on public mental health and on health and social care staff is explored in a new digital exhibition called A Centenary of Caring which is now open to the public.
The virtual, interactive exhibition, which has been created to celebrate the centenary year of nursing and midwifery becoming a registered profession (2020), is a collaboration between university students and health care workers from the Norfolk and Waveney Health and Care Partnership.
Students from Norwich University of the Arts and the University of East Anglia’s School of Health Sciences held a series of remote meetings with health and care staff to discuss what they were experiencing day-to-day in the community and their emotional response to the pandemic. With input from NUA and UEA academics, the discussions led to the creation of works of art in different forms: from video and photography, to painting to poetry and textiles.
The exhibition is on until 12 March, please have a look.
