People living with chronic pain often look good, but due to the invisibility of the condition can feel dreadful. Artists are being commissioned in the lead up to National Pain Week (25 – 31 July) to draw ten people who live with pain as they see them, then after they ask the question “How do you feel”. Two images for the same person. These will be framed and presented for two weeks within Westmead hospital from Monday 11th July through to the one day conference at the Lowenthal Auditorium of 29th July.
During this conference the Chairperson for the NSW Health Taskforce on Arts in Health will be talking about this initiative.
