All works displayed and performed will be led by health professionals, including nurses, doctors, pharmacists and allied health.
Lynn Sioson has been a nurse for 20 years. Before nursing, she had always loved drawing and art. When she decided to pursue regular creative practice a few years ago, she realised she was inspired by human complexities and experiences. She's drawn to our varied ways of thinking, emotional responses and myriad vulnerabilities. As a nurse she has had intimate observations of our capabilities to draw strength, even at our weakest moments. This is what Hope & Halos aims to express. The collection is about the difficulties we’ve faced in the last two years- it showcases our collective physical, emotional and mental struggles whilst also highlighting our abilities to be resilient, to remain creative, to cultivate empathy, and to maintain our fighting spirits. Hope and Halos is about struggle, yet it is also about enduring despite the darkness, or finding ways to light it up.
