Art Doctors: Emergency Museum at Kirklees Festival

Sat, 13 July 2019 - Sat, 13 July 2019

Kirklees Festival, Leeds


We teamed up with Thackray’s Emergency Museum (a vintage ambulance that was touring around Leeds while the museum was being refurbished) to prescribe creative activities at the Kirkstall Festival in Leeds.

We had some great conversations with families (children are so good at encouraging their parents to be creative!) and a particularly moving experience with a man whose wife was in hospital with terminal cancer and who was now going to take photos of some of the unexpected beauty he found in the hospital so that he could show and talk to her about it while she was awake.
