Supporting Lives: Behind the Scenes at Women’s and Children’s Hospital

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.

Presented by Women’s & Children’s Hospital Foundation
