Humanising Medicine - Being Human 2019

Being Human 2019 - Humanising Medicine

In celebration of the human side of medicine we held an evening of art and storytelling as part of the Being Human Festival 2019. The theme of Being Human was 'Discoveries and Secrets' and the theme for the Queen Mary-King's College London hub was 'This time it's personal'. 

The exhibition featured 140 artworks that represented experiences of health and/or illness on one day of someone's life or caring for the health of others. The evening included a series of short talks by a range of patients and professionals who shared their experiences of health and illness.

The event was held in Bart's Pathology Museum, which is based in St Bartholomew's Hospital at West Smithfield. It is a unique and fascinating venue as it houses over 5,000 medical specimens on display over 3 mezzanine levels of the Victorian museum
