2020 Vision Project endorsed by Marie Curie
Marie Curie contacted us when our project was just budding, at the beginning of April 2020. From that conversation we understood the importance of including Marie Curie healthcare workers in the 2020 Vision Project.
We could not be prouder to officially highlight the exceptional work that the Marie Curie team have delivered throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. We look forward to sharing the incredible portraiture and personal stories with you.
We selected some of our 2020 Vision Project photographers to capture Marie Curie healthcare workers from across their 9 UK hospices. A selection of these beautiful portraits have already been displayed at our September 2020 exhibition.

"We got the approval of hospice SMT teams to offer this opportunity to staff across our hospices. Staff can be from any role in the hospice (nursing, medics, domestics, admin, maintenance, fundraising etc).
This is an opportunity for Marie Curie to be included in a digital archive of Covid-19, representing the key role our staff have played in supporting patients and families, as well as the NHS. This is also an opportunity to thank our staff for their efforts during the coronavirus crisis as well as enabling them the gift of photography.
The 2020 Vision Project is an inspired way to recognise and thank the efforts of health and social care professionals across the UK and show the individual behind the role. Marie Curie is committed to supporting the NHS through this crisis, providing vital care for people with coronavirus and other illnesses in our hospices, in homes and care homes.
We're delighted to help highlight the personalities and passion of the people whose skills, experience and knowledge are providing the very best care that is so needed right now."
