Reflected Legacy

Reflected Legacy was a groundbreaking arts and health program at Liverpool Hospital that spanned an incredible 3 years and came to completion at the end of 2017. Jointly founded by Flutter Lyon, The Groundswell Project and the Palliative Care Unit at Liverpool Hospital, the Reflected Legacy project complemented the holistic care of cancer patients in Palliative Care.

Designed as an interactive experience between the artist and the patient to combine storytelling and art making, patients and their families engaged in intimate sessions held in patient rooms. Through a series of questions and storytelling exercises, the artist captured the life stories of people in the last days and weeks of their life in unique Ink-Pressing artworks and sound recordings, which were then given to the patient and their family as a gift of art and legacy.

In 2017, an artist in residence training program was conducted to extend the practice to a select group of artists wishing to bring their unique skills and experience into other health services. 10 artists were trained and a number of them took up a residency at Liverpool Hospital.


The program will be wound up by Dec 2017 at Liverpool, however the artists are all now taking their unique skills in Ink Pressing and legacy making into their own communities and local health settings. Pressing sessions are now available for booking with the artists directly:
Niki Read - Sydney
Bronwyn Ward - Melbourne
Trypheyna McShane - Sydney and NSW north coast
Sarah O’Connor - Brisbane
Rachel Ward - Tasmania

We thank Flutter Lyon, for sharing the vision and for their partnership over the past 3 years.

In box: Connection. Insight. Healing.

When we tell our stories, it gives us a way of sharing and reflecting upon the life we are living. Free expression and storytelling in this setting offers a deepened sense of connection to the value and meaning of our individual and shared life experiences.
