We are Metropolitan


  • Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust

Project summary

We are Metropolitan is an exhibition based on the findings of research carried out at Midland Metropolitan Hospital. It will engage a diverse community by starting conversations with the people affected by the conditions that we study. We hope to use this engagement to motivate them to become involved with research at the hospital. 

The exhibition will start at the hospital’s entrance and it will include presentations by our researchers and partner universities. Architects, arts groups, universities and clinicians will create, shape and visualise our research findings into contemporary and engaging exhibition pieces. Our audience will be as diverse as the conditions we research, but they will all be visitors to the hospital. The exhibition will also inspire a secondary audience from schools and colleges as well as people directly affected by the conditions that we are researching.
