+CultureShots Artefacts

Culture Shots week took place 12th to 16th November and provided both staff members, patients and visitors the opportunity to gain an insight into how art and culture can enhance health wellbeing.  The events organised by Whitworth Art Gallery included opportunities to touch and feel historical artefacts related to medicine (examples of the artefacts are displayed below) and discuss their significance.
