Animation Artist - Residency Opportunity, Paintings in Hospitals

Fri Jul 06, 2012 17:00

Paintings in Hospitals is inviting applications from animation artists who wish to develop their practice through working in the healthcare environment and collaborating with young patients. The residency will be based in the paediatric unit of St Mary’s Hospital, London and will take place over a period of six months from October 2012.

Paintings in Hospitals is a leading arts in health organisation in the UK. We use art to create welcoming and uplifting environments that improve health, well-being and the patient experience. Each year our work benefits an estimated 1.8 million patients, visitors and members of staff across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

We are looking for artists whose work is rooted in the exploration and experimentation of animation. During the residency, the selected artist will engage with in-patients from St Mary’s Hospital Paediatric Unit and produce an animated film. The unit treats young people with a wide range of conditions and further information can be found in the artist brief.

Applicants should be interested in entering into a dialogue with the young patients from the paediatric unit and in working within the healthcare environment. The selected artist will require extreme sensitivity to this unique environment. It is essential to consider how the works produced will affect participants as well as patients, staff and visitors to the hospital once the work goes on display. Experience of working in a challenging and rapidly changing environment is important along with enthusiasm and highly developed interpersonal skills.

Deadline for application: 6 July 2012 – 5 p.m
Fee: £ 7,000

If you are interested in the opportunity, please download the full brief in the news section of our website and return your application to

This project is made possible with the support of Outset Family.
