Local artist wanted for world-class project at the Royal Free Hospital


A local artist and a designer are being sought to work with local school children to create artwork for the hoardings around the Pears Building construction site at the Royal Free Hospital in Hampstead.

The Pears Building will house the UCL Institute of Immunity and Transplantation, a research facility currently located in the main hospital building.  The new facility, which will be one of only five clinical research centres of its kind in the world, will provide better treatments for cancer, diabetes, HIV and tuberculosis and to support transplantation.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for a local artist and someone who can help us make the most of this space,” said Chris Burghes, chief executive of the Royal Free Charity.

Any artists or schools interested in the project should contact rf.pearsinfo@nhs.net.
