Judy's Awareness Tree Quilt
Back in March we hosted a Learn & Share Event, which gathered together artists, healthcare staff and arts and health workers to highlight the importance of art for health. Attendants of the event participated in an activity to create their own leaf, complete with words, that best reflected their thoughts on the significance of arts for health. Artist Heather Lucchesi then took on the challenge to assemble the leaves into an artwork which aimed to raise awareness as a symbolic tree (now hanging at the Hive in the Royal Edinburgh Hospital run by SAMH).
Meanwhile Judy Parris, who attended the original event and inspired attendants with her own comments on why art mattered to herself as a carer, was so inspired by Heather's tree that she offered to make a quilt of it!
Somehow we've come full circle and one has been inspired by another, and another, through creativity, to promote health and wellbeing. A big, big thank you to all those involved, particularly Judy and Heather.
