Serpentine Projects and Imperial Health Charity Residencies

Over the course of 2019/20, artists Jasleen Kaur and Katie Schwab will work closely with staff and patients at Imperial Health Charity, thinking through questions around frailty and ageing, care and healthcare, and the NHS today.

The residencies will explore intersections between arts and health, working alongside a Trust wide research programme called the Frailty Project. The Frailty Project is a programme seeking to improve older patients’ pathways through the hospital system whilst working with staff to increase their confidence and skills in caring for patients.

Imperial Health Charity helps our hospitals do more through grants, arts, volunteering and fundraising. Working in partnership with the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, we fund major redevelopments, research and medical equipment at five London hospitals - Charing Cross, Hammersmith, Queen Charlotte's & Chelsea, St Mary's and the Western Eye - as well as helping patients and their families at times of extreme financial difficulty. Supporting the arts in healthcare, we manage an Arts Council accredited hospital art collection and run an arts engagement programme for patients and NHS staff. We also manage volunteering across all five hospitals, adding value to the work of staff and helping to improve the hospital experience for patients. Fundraising through major appeals and community events enables us to continue our essential work.
