Exploring technology

confidential


Our ways of interacting with the world are changing incredibly rapidly with the onset of new technologies.

New technologies open up new possibilities as well as offering easier access to forms of creative self-expression for more people. In time, these will have a fundamental impact on many aspects of healthcare. We will use our arts programme to explore these themes and enhance our ability to engage with our key audience groups.

A pilot programme will begin in the Oncology Department in autumn 2015, using digital screen and web-based technologies to create a rolling programme of remotely curated exhibitions, video and news.

Objectives:

- Work with the Public Catalogue Foundation to enable digital display of artworks

- Exploring how technology can enable patients with specific needs to engage in artistic practice.

- Work with local partners, especially organisations representing young people, to experiment with new technologies.
