Eating Disorders Unit 2013

This is a place to be me
There is no perfect solution or image.
We can let go of negative thoughts.
We can embrace accidental discoveries.
We can allow ourselves to be curious.

        Participant discoveries during the project

Artlink West Yorkshire invited artists Bryony and Rozi Fuller to develop and deliver a 10-week project with patients at the Eating Disorders Unit in Seacroft Hospital. Activities included photography, installation, textiles, sculpture, mark making, light projection and puppet making.

The project aimed to be a creative sanctuary, offering participants time to transform their dining room space through playful and imaginative activities. The project focused on ‘thinking big’ and immersing whole body into an environment in joyful ways. Sessions encouraged social interaction, learning new skills, increasing confidence and improving wellbeing.

This has been really fun. It’s one of the very few hours in the week when I don’t have to think about my disorder. It’s been a massive help." Participant.
