The Journey, is a series of handpainted pictures mounted on wooden ‘window’ frames depicting a traveller at different stages of a journey. Ward staff felt this concept provided a parallel to how service users are encouraged to think about their time in the hospital as a journey.
The landscape illustrations with the traveller were developed partly in response to images created during a workshop held on Laffan Ward with staff and service users, during which participants reflected on meaningful places in their lives, and shared personal stories of the challenges they had to overcome to get there. The designers produced the final artwork using natural materials and painted all the scenes by hand to convey a feeling of warmth and care.
