Artist Commission, Tallaght Hospital – deadline 2 December 2015

Project brief:

The commissioned artist will be asked to create a child friendly theme throughout the paediatric emergency department (ED) at Tallaght Hospital, Dublin. This includes the following areas:

  • Entrance corridor from hospital to paediatric emergency department
  • Reception area
  • Waiting area
  • 2 separate ED units – a four cubicle area and one six bed bay
  • Short stay area (8 bays)

The aim is for the art and design solution to offer children a welcoming, positive environment, with opportunities for distraction during stressful procedures. The clinical team have some ideas but are open to artists’ suggestions. We aim for a child friendly theme that will run through the various areas of the department.
