Maudsley Hospital

We worked with artists, patients and staff to create a series of extraordinary artworks for Eileen Skellern 1, a Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) for women at the Maudsley Hospital in South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust.

In our most ambitious project to date, we have commissioned world class artists to work in partnership with patients and staff to radically re-envision the physical environment on the unit with imaginative, inventive and PICU compliant artworks. Eileen Skellern 1 provides semi-secure hospital care for women who have severe and on-going mental illnesses. The unit is an intensively managed environment, where clinical processes are in place to keep patients safe and to aid their recovery.

To create artwork that would meet the specificities of the space required multiple gatherings between staff and artists, creative workshop sessions with patients, fabrication and installation innovation with partners and continued reviews and evaluation to ensure the best possible outcomes.

The result is 7 wonderful and bespoke artistic environments that aim to instil value, dignity and wellbeing in the people giving and receiving care at Eileen Skellern 1.
