Unity In Community

Sponsors & Logistics Partners for the Gratitude National Public Art Event – Autumn 2021

Gratitude is a spectacular outdoor public art installation which commemorates and celebrates the stories of the extraordinary early months of covid-19.

The image of key workers standing together, but apart, is one of the abiding images of our times – each worker socially distancing, while at the same time showing a unique coming together.

Launching in Birmingham on 20 August 2021, ahead of a free to visit tour across the UK, Gratitude brings together 49 uniquely-designed human form sculptures, all designed by individual artists and paying tribute to the NHS, while supporting the charity NHS Charities Together.

NHS Charities Together

NHS Charities Together is the national charity caring for the NHS, and we are made up of 240 NHS charity members based with hospitals, mental health, ambulance and community health services across the UK.

The funds raised by NHS Charities Together enable the health service to go above and beyond what would otherwise be possible. Their national reach means they can ensure funds get spent where they are most needed.
