Hospice Is

As an invited artist for ‘Hospice is…’project, you will be part of a movement to help raise public awareness on Hospice care and the importance of it as well as raise funds for Dover Park Hospice so that we may continue doing what we do for the patients we serve.

Hospice care is the philosophy of care where special attention is given to terminally-ill patients to help them live in dignity and comfort before leaving. It is not only restricted to the medical management of physical pain and symptoms, but also in meeting the emotional and spiritual needs of the patient as well as their family members.

Upon confirmation of your participation, you will receive a package with a PVC pre-moulded dove figurine and an informational booklet. What you will need to do is to translate your thoughts and feelings about end-of-life and Hospice Care into an art piece created from the doves. You can paint, print, draw, or use any art medium on these doves to translate your thoughts into an artistic piece. Selected doves will then be put together into an exhibition to showcase our community's perspective on end-of-life, and provide an opportunity to  heighten awareness for the Hospice cause. 

All art pieces will also be put on sale during the exhibition as well as other Dover Park Hospice events to help raise funds for the Hospice.

More information on Hospice care, what this project signifies, details on what you are supposed to do will be sent to you upon confirmation of your participation.
