February 28, 2022 was the 15th international rare disease Day. This year, the rare disease expertise platform and the communication department of the Necker hospital had chosen to highlight therapeutic education. In order to promote the work carried out by the reference centers teams, three actions have been adopted :
- The organization of a webinar during which healthcare teams, patients, their families/caregivers and members of associations gave their testimonies.
> Watch the replay of the webinar
- The possibility for each reference center to produce a poster to communicate on their latest programs.
- The realization of a large participatory fresco in collaboration with the artist Arthur Simony.
This participatory fresco is based on 3 key words illustrating therapeutic education: Autonomy, Well-being and Self-confidence.
During the international rare diseases Day, Arthur Simony made us the pleasure of coming to participate in the installation and to explain his artistic approach to the patients and caregivers present for the occasion.
This participatory work will be present in the atrium until this summer. It’s not finished yet. Many sections are still available to give free rein to your imagination.
We are therefore waiting for you all, patients, caregivers, helpers to come and enrich this work, of which here are some photos.
Arthur Simony is interested in words and the positive vibes they can convey. In this work, where the words repeat themselves rhythmically, he lets the ink flow as the writing progresses or, on the contrary, focuses on the precision of the line. The black letters forming the work are often enhanced with bright colors that respond to each other. The work thus composed is charged with sensitivity and positive energy. It produces, on the observer, an irradiating effect and is good for those who practice it as well as for those who look at it.
