Children’s Space aims to create a welcoming environment for young patients at NHS Forth Valley Royal Hospital. Visual interventions have been developed in a creative collaboration between visual artist Sharon Quigley and designer Andrew McGregor. Imagery has been conceived through consultation and co-participatory projects with staff, patients and families on the Children’s Ward at Forth Valley Royal.
Over the next two weeks, corridors, waiting areas, windows, bulk heads and treatment rooms, in Post Operative Care, A&E, the Children’s Ward and the Paediatric Treatment and Assessment unit, will be transformed with colourful imagery, drawn directly from the environment surrounding the hospital, alluding to both growth and renewal. These artworks will be accompanied throughout by brightly coloured Audio Bird Boxes and Kaleidoscopic Bird Boxes.
