Last year D&D Leasing were proud to sponsor the Medicine Unboxed Creative Prize and this year we are excited to announce that we will be sponsoring this amazing award once again.
The Medicine Unboxed is a nonprofit enterprise that helps in understanding medicine through the arts and humanities. Medicine Unboxed engages the public and front-line NHS staff with a view of medicine that is infused and elaborated by the humanities. Contributors include artists, writers, the clergy, poets, philosophers, lawyers, linguists, musicians, theatre, ethicists, academics and doctors. The results are thought-provoking, inspiring, sometimes funny and often moving.
The Medicine Unboxed Creative Prize, established in 2014, is a single prize for a creative work that explores the interface between art and medicine and has gained significant visibility in the arts and medical communities for its inclusiveness and breadth of vision.
In 2014 the prize attracted almost 80 international entries, which were reduced to a shortlist of 7 whose work spanned poetry, performance, experimental music and cross-media art. The Prize is unique in that it accepts entries from any art form. It is also unique in its two stage process that allows artists an opportunity to refine and extend existing work around the prize theme or create entirely new work.
Last year the prize was won by a Poet and Professor, Tiffany Atkinson, and we were honored to have been able to sponsor such an inspiring prize. Sponsoring the prize provides an opportunity to engage with a passionate audience of medical professionals worldwide and to bring into existence new creative work for the benefit of doctors and their patients. D&D Leasing is proud to be a part of this amazing event and we encourage others to get involved in their community and help create a positive future.
