Niki Read of The Groundswell Project talks about social aspects of death and dying and how art acts as a way to access difficult conversations about quality of life in death, and quality of bereavement. She discusses the Creative Legacy Project in times of COVID and how it supports people receiving palliative care, family members and staff. “Art opens up spaces for people to enter into…”. The project allowed staff, by engaging with art, to take time out of their busy schedules and reflect on what they have done, and the ‘above and beyond care’ that happened during the pandemic lockdown.
