With You: Expanded Performance Prototype

With You, is a free digital service to support isolated patients and care home residents, produced by Trigger with the support of Bristol+Bath Creative R+D .

When the Covid pandemic hit last year, Trigger a South West based outdoor arts charity, award-winning producers and socially engaged practitioners turned their attention to the high numbers of people who were suffering in hospital with limited visitation opportunities.

In response to this, they created an innovative digital service to expediently send voice messages and music to loved ones in critical care and ICU wards in hospitals at the time when they need it most. They learnt that limited visitation is a long term issue – and that people spend many hours alone in their greatest time of need

Join us for the showcase to explore the future of the service, find out more from the Co-Director Angie Bual, the Creative Team behind the project and to hear from care givers about their experience using WithYou.

WithYou has been shortlisted for Most Innovative Pilot at this year’s Health Tech Awards and currently runs at Oxford University Hospitals, North Bristol NHS Trust, Airedale NHS Foundation Trust and Whittington Health NHS Trust, with over 400 messages being sent to users across 16 wards and a care home.

The event will be held in Watershed 3 at Watershed, 1 Canons Road, Bristol, BS1 5TX.
