This project displays artworks made by patients on Lion ward at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), inspired by Jacqueline Wilson’s Hetty Feather

For this five week project, young patients and their parents on the oncology and hematology wards 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 the author’s own experiences of kind acts. The display includes recordings of children recalling their own experiences of kindness by doctors, nurses and family.

In partnership with GOSH Arts
