Unescorted showcases artwork by patients who have used medium secure services at Bethlem Royal Hospital, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust. The title Unescorted refers to the leave status granted to secure patients during their recovery. “Creative time can provide an outlet for expression, focus, play and freedom which acts as a valuable counterpoint for the restrictions of the hospital environment. The brain needs that.” Josip Lizatovic, Art Coordinator, River House.
A satellite exhibition at Maudsley Long Gallery will be on until the end of December.
Gallery and museum open first and last Saturday of the month 10am – 5pm. Join us on 14 November 5-6pm, for a discussion event with Dr Gerard Drennan, Tethered thoughts: Reflections on leave, security and attachment in secure settings please book here.
