Published 14 December 2022

We launched Stylus Changemakers in 2020 to celebrate and support the next generation of creators and innovators who are making a difference and driving positive change. In this series of interviews, we sit down with our class of 2022 to uncover more about them and their businesses, and hear about their experience of being a Stylus...

Founded by curator Niamh White and artist Tim A Shaw, 2022 Changemaker Hospital Rooms is an arts and mental health charity that commissions extraordinary and engaging artworks for NHS mental health inpatient units across the UK.

 

In this interview, Stylus’ head of Multimedia, Christian Ward, speaks with Niamh about why the charity was founded, the process of choosing the artists they work with, and highlights a recent exhibition that combines three major works by Mark Titchner, Harold Offeh, and Michelle Williams Gamaker.

 

“Our community of artists are absolutely amazing. […] we've worked with everyone from Sonia Boyce, who just won the Golden Lion at the Venice Biennale, to Harold Offeh, who has an amazing participatory practice and will be showing at the Van Gogh house this month. And that's a real spectrum of artists who share the experiences of the communities that we work with and cared deeply about them.”

It's been incredible having access to the information that's inside Stylus. For us as a small organisation, it's not something that we would be able to access without the support of the Changemaker programme. […] for us, it's been a tool for inspiration […] to open up our world, so we're really grateful for that support.”
