In celebration of the NHS’s achievements and the contributions of its staff, Camden Council and the Migration Museum have collaborated with Outernet London to curate a captivating photo exhibition.
Held at Outernet in Tottenham Court Road from 4 – 9 July, this exhibition features a powerful collection of moving photographs and film.
Camden Council has worked with Rankin Creative, University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH), London Metropolitan University, the London Irish Centre, and Outernet London to produce the photo exhibition. ‘Who Cares for Camden’ showcases the diverse communities within Camden who have dedicated themselves to the NHS.
SPEAK, a new music and film installation commissioned by the Migration Museum exploring the relationship between care and migration to mark the 75th anniversary of the NHS, will also be screened at Outernet London. Created by artists Emmanuel Sugo and Kaia Laurielle, SPEAK features the voices and perspectives of seven first or second-generation migrant NHS workers. Through song and storytelling, these personal experiences form the emotional centre of the installation, exploring how their experience as migrants has informed their work, the challenges and sacrifices they have made, and the rewards they have found.
This free installation will make its London premiere on Tuesday 4 July at the Now Pop One space at Outernet London, an immersive entertainment district located in the heart of the West End, and will be on display throughout the NHS 75th anniversary week.
SPEAK also forms the centre-piece of the Migration Museum’s new national touring exhibition Heart of the Nation: Migration and the Making of the NHS, opening at Leicester Museum and Art Gallery on 30 June 2023.
