We display art made by young patients at Great Ormond Street Hospital, inspired by Jacqueline Wilson’s much-loved book Hetty Feather

Patients and their parents on the oncology and hematology wards at Great Ormond Street worked with artist Davina Drummond and our Curator of Artists’ Projects to explore acts of kindness in hospital. The project was inspired by the lack of kindness experienced by Jacqueline Wilson’s fictional foundling Hetty Feather at the Foundling Hospital, as well as by author Jacqueline Wilson’s own experiences of kind acts. The display includes recordings of children recalling acts of goodwill they have received from doctors, nurses and family.

In partnership with GOSH Arts
