All About Me!
“My daughter has been in hospital for months, this is the first time I have seen her back to her old self, hearing her laugh and play with the other children and (NPG) team means so much”
In 2010 over 800 children, young people and family members participated in the Gallery’s pilot All About Me! summer holiday programme at Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital..
During 2011-13 the Gallery will work in partnership with Great Ormond Street, Evelina Children’s Hospital, Barts and the Royal London and University College Hospital London to deliver the All About Me! programme during the school holidays. These sessions enable children, young people and their families to engage with visual artists and create their own artists’ journals. These journals will represent their interests, aspirations and ideas.
