The H-Word Exhibition
Our first exhibition of The H-Word took place from 18th - 27th June 2019 at The Whistler Gallery at DanceEast in Ipswich. We had overwhelmingly positive feedback, and the exhibition was featured on BBC Look East and ITV Anglia News, as well as local radio stations and national newspaper and online news coverage. You can read more and see photos from the launch event here.
Following on from the success of our exhibition in June, we are now taking the H-Word 'on tour'! We had two very successful exhibitions at Huntingdon and Ely Libraries in October 2019, and will be exhibiting at Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital for four months starting Autumn/Winter 2019 (dates TBC).
If you haven't made it to an exhibition yet, or would like to find out more, you can watch our films made with the photographs and audio interviews with each of the participants (don't forget to fill in our feedback form and let us know what you think!)
The H-Word is the culmination of a participatory photography project with a group of parents who access care and support from The Treehouse, EACH's hospice in Ipswich. The project has investigated the participants’ experience of EACH, and their response to the word ‘hospice’ and how this may have changed over time.
Feedback from visitors so far has shown an increase in positive perceptions of children's hospices after viewing the exhibition, and this is something we want to keep building on with a continued programme of exhibitions across the EACH region.
