Children from Great Ormond Street Hospital created rosettes with messages of hope and their wishes for their future.

Inspired by the tokens that mothers left with their babies when admitted to the Foundling Hospital, children created rosettes with their own message of hope or their wish for their future. These were displayed in the Museum’s Introductory Gallery.

Since 2014 the Foundling Museum and GOSH Arts have worked in partnership to undertake a series of artist-led projects with children at the hospital, designed to enhance young patients’ experience as part of the holistic care provided. Responding to the legacy of the Foundling Hospital, the children have worked directly with visual artists to create animations and works of art addressing their personal experiences of hospital.
