“Identity” – NHS Open Art Show 2009 is open for submissions

February 23, 2009

Following the fantastic success of “Future Bright” in 2008 (the first NHS Open Art Show in Leicestershire), the Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust (LPT) is proud to announce it’s brand new show for 2009: submissions are invited for “Identity”.

Identity will be making an expanded tour of Leicester and Leicestershire. It will be hosted at four prestigious venues: The City Gallery (Leicester), Victoria Hall (Oakham), The Ten 2 Gallery (Hinckley) and Charnwood Museum (Loughborough).

The show theme of “Identity” was picked from a long list of ideas from members of the public. Ideas came from artists and non-artists alike, including some from mental health service users. The chosen title was submitted by Scott Bridgwood, an exhibitor at “Future Bright”, by commenting on this website.

Lydia Towsey (Creative Arts Coordinator, job share, LPT) said:

“Identity and creativity have a direct relationship. We’re really looking forward to seeing how people across Leicester and Leicestershire express themselves and interpret the theme.”
