Art: A Powerful Form of Expression, an exhibition of works by stroke survivors at the Imperial Stroke Centre, Charing Cross Hospital We are delighted to showcase Art: A Powerful Form of Expression, an exhibition of art works by stroke survivors as part of the Big Draw & World Stroke Day on 29 October 2018.  The Art Rehabilitation Programme at the Imperial Stroke Centre is supported by the Imperial Health Charity and run by Emelie Salford. The programme offers stroke patients of all ages the opportunity to communicate through art.   Art serves as a helpful tool, stimulus and outlet, reducing stress and encouraging a positive outlook on life, it can also aid dexterity, coordination and boosts self-esteem. Art enables patients to express themselves in a freer way, there’s no right or wrong and artistic expression has an invaluable ability to brighten up the day. The aim is not to create a masterpiece, it’s about being curious and allowing oneself to explore new ways of communicating. 

The exhibition opens on World Stroke Day on the 29th of October with a preview at 2.30pm

Art: A Powerful Form of Expression will be up and running until 2019. The works are on show on the 9th Floor centre core area, Charing Cross Hospital, Fulham Palace Road, London W6 8RF
