Making Beauty: Elpida Hadzi-Vasileva

Making Beauty: Elpida Hadzi-Vasileva

20th August 2016

Djanogly Gallery, Nottingham Lakeside Arts, University Park

Raising the profile of our research here at NIHR Nottingham Digestive Diseases BRU as well as the important role of Patient & Public Involvement (PPI) work requires a constant and wide range of methods to get the message across to the wider community.

To this end, for the past two years, the BRU has been working closely with the Djanogly and Lakeside Arts here on the University Campus to come up with a unique and exciting pitch. There will be a six-week exhibit running from the 20th August. As part of this exhibit, the artist that we’ve been privileged to work with over this time, Elpida Hadzi-Vasileva - - has spent some time constructing an exhibit that looks in to the world of digestive diseases, and the impact it has upon the lives of those who have this condition (both physical and psychological). This included working directly with five of our Patient Advisory Group members.

The press release (PDF) from Lakeside Arts provides more information.

During the exhibit we’ll be promoting the work of the BRU, and PPI, to engage with the Nottingham public and beyond, not only to raise the profile of our research, but also to add to the numbers we need in our studies/trials.

We very much encourage you to attend at any point in the six-week period, and if you pop along, we’ll very much welcome you to our stands
