Young patients from Great Ormond Street Hospital’s dialysis wards created a collaborative animation.

Working with animator Shelly Wain, the children drew on their own experiences to create an animation that describes the process of dialysis through to a kidney transplant. The short film was inspired by the Foundling Hospital’s history of medical innovation and Great Ormond Street’s ground-breaking transplant processes.

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.
