Poet and artist Hazel Hammond explores the challenges of living with Aphasia, raising awareness for the vital role the arts can play in recovery.

Hazel Hammond has been a poet and an artist for over 40 years. In 2018 she had a stroke and now lives with Aphasia, a condition shared by over 350,000 people in the UK and affecting their ability to speak, write and read. This project explores the effects of Aphasia on Hazel’s work as she rediscovers her artistic practice through drawings, film making and other artforms.

Not the Same Poet, But Always an Artist consists of exhibitions of drawings and photographs at partner venues Arnolfini and Southmead Hospital, workshops for people living with Aphasia, their families and the medical staff involved in their care, as well as public film screenings and exhibitions
