Beyond Walls

Beyond walls is an emerging blog based website that aims to capture the emerging development and realisation of the Art and Therapeutic Design programme for the new building and home to the Royal Hospital for Children and Young People, Department of Clinical Neuroscience and Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services, Edinburgh.

The programme consists of over twenty projects and team of over thirty artists, designers and makers forming one of the largest art in healthcare programmes in the UK.

The emphasis is on the integration and enhancement of the patient experience within arrival, waiting, treatment and ward spaces.

To balance the architecture and design led commissions a series of artist fellowships and residencies have been commissioned to run through 2017  and into Spring 2018.

The majority of the design development has now been completed and project teams are now working with specialist art fabricators to construct and install their work in time for the hospital opening in Spring 2018.
