Seascape in the main entrance

Over 100 children and young people painted a fish for our feature wall in the new main reception at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).

Workshops took place all over the hospital and there was an online worksheet so that patients could also take part remotely. 

The Seascape links into the theme of the new main entrance and boat reception desk. The fish represent the number and diversity of our patients at GOSH. 

All of the fish were scanned and positioned into a vibrant and colourful 20 metre long piece by graphic design company Sable&Hawkes. 

The resulting piece celebrates the creativity of our patients and gives their work prominence in the new main entrance. Children can search for their fish or interact with the piece by looking for creatures and counting seahorses. 

With thanks to all the children, young people, families and staff who took part in this project.
