CUREate is a new programme to make creative graduates aware of London’s postgraduate health courses.
Selected students will be funded to produce 1 of 7 artworks designed to explore health issues impacting the lives of Londoners. Students can collaborate cross-discipline and in any medium – work submitted as part of academic assessment is also eligible.
Get creative - any form of creative expression is welcomed. From soundscapes, movement pieces, to sculpture and mixed media.
If your concept is selected you will get £100 to produce it and it will form part of the celebration of the celebrations for 2020 “Year of The Nurse and Midwife”.
London is an amazing place – it’s diverse & rich in culture & art. Living in one of the greatest cities on earth is exciting ... but it’s not without its difficulties. Our health is impacted by inequalities from varied life expectancy & poverty, to public health challenges like stress, anxiety and loneliness.
Key points to reflect on:

My idea for an artwork exploring Londoner's Wellbeing is:
I chose this concept because:
The panel awarding the commissions will consist of Londoners working in mental health & the arts..
The work must be available to be shown or performed as part of an international conference taking place 11/6/20 at Middlesex University.
It will also be displayed at the Eileen Skellern awards in the Quad.
The successful artists will be interviewed for a series of Health blogs and journals on the CUREate website.
