Small Actions, Big Difference photography tour
Our 'Small Actions, Big Difference' photography exhibition is on tour around the country until July 2013. The photographs sensitively capture the seemingly minor actions that can make a powerful difference to the quality of life for people in their final days, and for those who care for them. By highlighting stories and experiences related to dying, the exhibition triggers much needed discussion about the way we die in Britain today.
Following a week-long residence at the Truman Gallery earlier this year, the photographs, taken by Nadia Bettega, are being hosted around the UK. They can be seen at the following venues in 2013:
31 December - 13 January: St Elizabeth Hospice, 565 Foxhall Road, Ipswich, Suffolk, IP3 8LX. The exhibition will be open to the public from from 9am - 8pm, including on the Open Day on Saturday 5 January.
