Previous Royal Academy of Arts projects

2015 Project: Rubens and His Legacy – Celebrating Life, Death, Legacy and Art

Our annual collaboration with the Royal Academy of Art this year is exploring life, death, legacy and art through a series of displays, talks and workshops, both at St Christopher’s and the Royal Academy of Art in London’s Piccadilly.

2014 Project: Sensing Spaces

Responding to different structures, textures, lighting, scents and colours, some of the big questions about the nature of architecture are considered; how do spaces make us feel? What does architecture do for our lives?

2013 Project: Portraying Life

This project captured the views of dying people and those who care for them through the creation of a range of artistic self-portraits using various artistic mediums including photography, quilt making, painting, drawing, creative writing and music making.

2012 Project: Personal Landscapes

Views from the end of life

Between January and March 2012, the Royal Academy of Arts and St Christopher’s Hospice worked on a new dynamic creative arts project.

The project captured the views of dying people and those who care for them through the creation of a range of artistic stories and landscapes.

The project ran alongside a new David Hockney exhibition, shown at the Academy during the same time period. Hockney’s landscapes capture one persons unique view of the same vista at different moments in time.
