Stewart's Hospital is a charitable foundation, with more than 140 years tradition in the provision of care for people with intellectual disability. The institution was the first in Ireland to offer such support for people with severe disabilities. Services are provided regardless of age, religion, socio-economic background and encompassing every degree of intellectual disability.
3rd Yr Education students undertook a two week placement in Stewart’s Hospital in September working with the clients. In Rosscourt, NCAD students, trainees and clients worked on the theme of the ‘Salmon of Knowledge’ celebrating the multiple intelligences of the group through making fish using various media. The group in the Coach house explored the work of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) and developed individual boxes around the theme of the clients personal dreams.
The work is currently exhibited on Floor 2 of the Design building.
