Take a wander down Bethnal Green Road and take a look at ‘200 Nationalities, One NHS’ a mural in partnership with Paint the Change.
Believed to be largest mural in the UK to celebrate the work of the NHS, this four-storey giant mural on the front of our building celebrates diversity in the healthcare service, which is made up of almost 200 nationalities across 1.7 million members of staff.
The mural is formed by 226 flowers drawn by artists and members of the public, then made into a giant piece of art by ATMA and applied to our award-winning louvres. See what ATMA had to say about constructing this gigantic piece of art when the BBC popped down for an interview in October.
Serving as a reminder of the local community’s gratitude to the NHS and its diverse and international colleagues, everyone is welcome to make a trip down to our socially distant art work this autumn and winter, and tag us in your photos so we can see.
Paint the Change is a global street art project for social justice. We believe that public art can play a powerful role in stimulating discussions around urgent social issues. A mural is not just a work of art: it becomes a social and digital event and a focus for dialogue and progress.
