NHS public art installation / 2021
The image of key workers standing together, but apart, is one of the abiding images of our times – each worker socially distancing and standing apart, while at the same time showing a unique coming together. Gratitude is a spectacular outdoor public art installation which commemorates and celebrates the stories of this extraordinary moment in time.
Launching in Birmingham in summer 2021, ahead of a free to visit tour across the UK, Gratitude brings together uniquely-designed human form sculptures to acknowledge key workers and pay tribute to the NHS.
After touring the UK in accessible locations including Birmingham, Edinburgh and London, the sculptures will be auctioned in autumn 2021 with substantial proceeds donated to NHS Charities Together, which will support the NHS, including its hospitals, ambulance services, community and mental healthcare providers and vital partnerships.
