UCLH Arts and Heritage instigated an Arts on Prescription pilot initiative for outpatients receiving, or who had recently completed treatment at the Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine to be referred to a 6-week mindfulness drawing course, aimed at improving wellbeing.
Are you interested in taking part in the 2022 edition of Kensington + Chelsea Art Week?
We are delighted to announce that the theme for 2022 is NOURISH! Read below a summary of the theme to inspire your project or exhibition for this year’s Art Week; we encourage our participants to host events that implement food and drink to compliment the theme: how can we nourish ourselves without depleting our planet?
“Every living being is sustained by the nourishment of some kind, whether through consumption of food, photosynthesis or other means. Nourishment can also be intellectual, social and mystical.
Nourishment in the form of food is fundamental to life. How it is grown, harvested, prepared, eaten, shared and wasted are essential questions when it comes to ecology and to sustainability.
Consider commensality as a social activity, which creates and cements relationships, but also sets boundaries. Think of nourishment as a form of knowledge – food for the soul as well as food for the body.
Food is culture. It unties and divides us. It is sensual. It is gluttonous and indulgent. It is pleasure, spirituality and meditation, pain and boredom. It is fun!”
We hope that our theme will activate questions related to how nourishment can be vehicle for visual experimentation with form and the senses, with sharing and togetherness, with kindness, with teaching and learning, and with expanding on nourishment as a form of knowledge.
