Catherine Bell: We Die As We Live

This publication documents a yearlong, socially-engaged art in health project supported by City of Melbourne and St Vincent’s Hospital Artist Residency Program. The project engaged over one hundred staff working at Caritas Christi Hospice and St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne’s oncology and palliative care wards. The creative responses document each participant’s experience of death and what is meaningful in their lives. The exhibition, We Die As We Live (2017) at St Vincent’s Private Hospital invited the public to reflect on these works and the themes of mortality and remembrance they explore.
