Artwork produced by patients who are coming to the end of their lives and are, or have been, cared for by St Christopher's, the internationally renowned south east London hospice. This work of quality, depth and vision includes paintings, writing, pottery, craftwork and electronic media.
The exhibition, which also celebrates the 40th Anniversary of the Hospice's opening in 1967 by Dame Cicely Saunders, is open to visitors, free of charge, at any time during City Hall's normal opening hours.
Arts for Life is also the name of St Christopher's much larger and innovative outreach project - run as part of the Hospice's Creative Living Centre - which provides a professional arts service to specialist palliative care patients, carers and health and social care professionals in the community which it serves. The project, supported by Arts Council England and the Alfred and Peggy Harvey Charitable Trust, was launched in January 2007 and currently involves over 1000 patients.
