People Invited to Take Part in Art Project – From Their Homes

People from across Birmingham are being invited to use their time at home to unleash their creative energy and be part of a unique artwork to celebrate the 110th anniversary of John Taylor Hospice.

Fleeting Moments will be staged at Library of Birmingham in November and December 2020 and will feature work from people of all ages and backgrounds.

The hospice is asking everyone across the city to make their own fabric birds to be included in the artwork, alongside pieces created in community settings.

The birds will then be brought together as a flock in a special artwork in the foyer of the Library of Birmingham where Fleeting Moments will be free to view and visit.

Birmingham-based artists Jane Thakoordin and Margaret Murray have created instructions which are downloadable from John Taylor Hospice’s website so that anyone who wants to participate can make their own birds at home.

Fleeting Moments is being created during the 110th anniversary year of John Taylor Hospice which was founded in the city in 1910. One of the oldest hospices in the country, John Taylor teams have been caring for generations of local families through two world wars, economic hardships and numerous changes to health care.

Founded by philanthropists in Birmingham and led by pioneer Mary Darby Sturge, the hospice is named after leading doctor and gynaecologist John Taylor who worked in the city and died in 1910. More than a hundred years later the hospice still relies on donations from the public to provide care.

‘The Silent Pain’ needs your vote!

The Saleem Foundation charity, in partnership with Dudley Mind, have produced ‘The Silent Pain’. The film reflecting on mental health, outlines how depression is not always obvious and how we should take a moment out just to ask one another, “are you ok”? It is important we spread the message of hope. It is also important we stress it’s fine not to be ok, but more importantly, it’s important we all know we are not alone.

The Saleem Foundation charity was founded in 2017 and supports charities and voluntary organisations across Birmingham and the Black Country, that undertake charitable work in the fields of health, disability and financial hardship. The charity will also support individuals and their families who are disadvantaged by their youth, age, ill-health, disability or financial hardship and will take the form of grant aid, organised events and donations.

The Silent Pain has been shortlisted for the Charity Films Awards. Please vote for The Silent Pain.

Voting closes Friday, 6 March 2020.
