The Nightbird Project
The Nightbird Project is a creative wellbeing project, for people with life-limiting illnesses. Hosted by Dr Kershaw’s Hospice (Oldham) the project brings together a supportive peer group to work with professional artists alongside a healthcare and well-being team, to create meaningful and joyful art about their life.
The project was initially inspired by a woman called Becky, who herself had a life-limiting illness and connected with her own creativity during this time, and wanted to share her story and experiences.
In 2023, I have been brought on by the Dr Kershaw’s Hospice to work as lead-artist with the team, to host workshops and support the group to make art about their perspectives and experiences. This very first version of The Nightbird Project leads to towards a public exhibition in Autumn 2023.
