A short run set of flash cards by Ruth Ewan, made for use in older adult wards at The Royal London, Mile End, Whipps Cross and Newham University Hospital.

The card sets were made in response to interviews conducted with patients from wards across these hospitals, featuring excerpts from the interviews paired with images selected from public archives local to the hospitals and the patients.

The card are currently in use in the wards and are designed to invoke reflection, reminiscence and encourage conversation between patients, staff and visitors. They were designed in consultation with dementia specialist Lucy Cosgrove.

‘Being as you mentioned…’ was commissioned by Vital Arts.
