BA Photography students from Northbrook College have recently completed their 8 week live project with Worthing Hospital. Students were tasked to produce photography that would be used in the recently redeveloped Medical Day Case Unit (MDCU), now named Amberly Unit.
The day care unit was designed to be as calming and friendly as possible due to the fact that patients attending the facility could spend long periods of time receiving treatment. As a result, Worthing Hospital asked the students to provide artwork all throughout the Amberly Unit, contributing to the improvement of the overall patient experience by easing anxiety and stress.
Photography students produced a total of 24 pieces of artwork for eight rooms throughout the brand new facility, interpreting the project brief set by Worthing Hospital Trust in association with Macmillan.
Course Leader, Dan Fullerton-McIntyre had this to say regarding the project:
“Working on live projects gives our students unique opportunities to work on professional live briefs with the support and encouragement of practicing professionals and staff.
It is always encouraging for students to have their work used by external bodies, who recognise the value of the work and this helps students to make the transition from studying to employment in the creative arts.”
