George Hospital in the Western Cape recently unveiled six stunning murals created by staff members in remembrance of the COVID-19 pandemic and how it has changed the world. The hospital is one of six around the world to participate in this international project.
The murals were painted by about 40 staff members in August, and forms part of the international Balcony Bands Mural Project. It will remain in the hospital for years to allow staff and patients to reflect on 2020 and its challenges.
The art was inspired by all the musicians who kept their neighbours entertained and spirits high at the height of lockdowns across the world.
“The Balcony Bands Mural Project was a tremendous opportunity for staff to participate in a creative and stimulating activity, away from the frontline and support their emotional wellbeing. We are excited to unveil the completed project today.”
