Two of the Hull 2017 Creative Communities projects Artlink was a major partner in have received award recognition. A Sight to Behold, a project which involved the creation of a permanent tactile sculpture for Hull Eye Hospital developed with blind and partially sighted people across Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, has won a national award for Collaboration. The awards were organised by Visonary, an umbrella organisation of all sight loss charities and the awards were voted for by its members. Pictured are staff from SightSupport in Hull, the project lead, at the ceremony. You can find out more about A Sight to Behold here.
Meanwhile, My Stammering Tap, a short animation developed by artist Peter Snelling with children and adults who stammer, in a project produced by Artlink with the NHS Speech Therapy service, won a Giving Voice Award at the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapy and the Chairs award at the Humber NHS Trust Annual Awards. It was also shown in the Leeds Short Film Awards and received a special mention. You can find out more about the project and view the film here.
