A Helping Hand celebrates the important contribution of volunteers to the Women’s and Children’s Health Network. The exhibition includes photos of many familiar faces of the volunteers along with sketches of the volunteers at work by Adelaide artist, Fran Callen, as well a collaborative artwork created with help from volunteers!

Adelaide artist, Fran Callen, undertook an artist in residence in the Volunteer Department at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital during March and April this year. Fran sent time getting to know the volunteers in different departments and learning about the important work they do in the Hospital while sketching and collecting ideas. Her sketches show familiar scenes, from volunteers helping visitors find their way in the Volunteer Guide Booth to Surgical Services Volunteers helping families prepare for surgery. Fran also spent time in the Volunteer Haven working on a collaborative work on canvas.

The exhibition is a collaborative project between the Women’s & Children’s Hospital Foundation Arts in Health Program and the WCHN Volunteer Department in celebration of National Volunteer Week.  National Volunteer Week is the annual celebration to acknowledge the generous contribution of our nation’s volunteers. This year Volunteering Australia is promoting the National Volunteer Week theme: Give a little. Change a lot. This years’ theme represents the millions of volunteers who make a profound impact in their communities and on society, through giving a little time.
