We were thrilled to welcome storyteller Joe Brennan to be our Artist in Residence for 2021. Under the project title Telling Tales, Joe worked with staff of UHW for six months, offering opportunities to experience oral storytelling in different ways, including a Thursday Tale, a Storytelling Lounge and Telling the Story, a programme of storytelling workshops. Staff teams could also avail of one off Introduction to Storytelling workshops with their colleagues. Joe’s encounters with healthcare staff and his observations of life at the hospital also led him to create The Curing Walk, a new original story of hope in the midst of darkness, which captures the spirit of generosity and inherent goodness in people.
