Hope and resilience

Hope and Resilience was designed and painted by professional artist Kevin Gavaghan, who is one of our artists with sight loss.

Design summary

About his design inspiration, Kevin said, “My design represents tackling the difficulties we face in life. Recognising, owning life challenges, and pushing onwards for a better life. Acceptance of the good and striving to do better. Recognising life is challenging and beautiful at the same time.”

Sensory items

We asked our artists to come up with a scent and a touch item that relates to their design to give a multi-sensory perspective to their concept. Some of these items will be incorporated into our sighted guide and sensory tours. Kevin's sensory items are:

  • Touch item: Water.
  • Scent item: Wildflowers and grass.
