Step into the silenced lives of porters (orderlies), cooks, cleaners, linen and logistics staff at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital in the early to mid-twentieth century. Often overlooked in comparison to nurses and doctors, these staff play lifesaving roles in patient hygiene, nutrition, comfort and more. Artists in Residence, James Parker and nurse-turned-writer Amelia Walker, have transformed tales from the hospital archives into a mixed-mode online and physical exhibition including dry-point prints, poetry, and digital storytelling in celebration of these hidden heroes and their unsung contributions. Visit exhibition.
