3 Year Anniversary Auction
Tuesday 18 June 2019

Hospital Rooms’ 3 year anniversary celebration took place in June 2019 at Hauser & Wirth. Works were generously donated by a roster of artists who have worked on Hospital Rooms projects throughout the past 3 years. The evening was a roaring success and our supporters helped us to raise an incredible figure of £60,000. Every penny will go directly to funding our projects for the year. We could not undertake the work we do without your help. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!

The evening featured moving speeches from Hospital Rooms co-founders Niamh White and Tim A Shaw as well as artist Richard Wentworth and Laury Jeanneret, a nurse who has worked closely with us on our project at Hellingly. Laury perfectly described the importance of the work that we are doing and the positive impact it can generate. You can read a transcript of Laury Jeanneret’s speech by clicking HERE.

“…And this is where the amazing work of Hospital Rooms holds such value. Because it is not just about making the wards prettier, it is about showing our patients that they are worth something more than being locked on a sterile ward, creating spaces that actually aid recovery and reflection, and empowering them to be part of that process.”
— Laury Jeanneret, Nurse, Hellingly
