Our Projects

Anatomy Acts

Anatomy-Acts2Anatomy Acts, the Partnership’s first initiative, toured Scotland in 2006-2007. The exhibition was nominated for the Gulbenkian Prize for museums and Galleries 2007 and the Museums & Heritage Award 2007 (Touring or Temporary Exhibition). The associated publication; Anatomy Acts: how we come to know ourselves, was the winner of the Royal Society of Medicine Non-Clinical Medical Book 2007 and the Royal Society of Medicine Library Prize: Medical Book of 2007.

InPrint Online Exhibition

in-print-2In 2008 the partnership was awarded funding by the Regional Development Fund for the Scotland and Medicine in Print online exhibition. The exhibition formed part of the larger national programme, led by the National Library of Scotland, Scottish Printing Archival Trust and the Scottish Print Employers Federation, to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the printed word in Scotland.

The exhibition shows examples of the printing and publishing of medical and health related works in Scotland over the past 500 years.

Human Race

Human-RaceHuman Race following on from the critical success of previous initiatives, the Partnership was granted funding from LTUK and Creative Scotland to deliver a touring exhibition of Scottish Medical collections and newly commissioned artworks. The exhibition explored the body as it prepares for, and competes in, sport. It highlighted for the first time some of the pioneering developments in medical imaging, surgery and sports training that have taken place over the last 200 years, and their subsequent impact on the development of Sport and Exercise Medicine as we know it today. It toured six Scottish regions 2012-2013 in traditional and non-traditional venues and was seen by more than 350,000 people.

The Human Race project formed part of LTUK’s The Scottish Project which created a cultural and sporting legacy from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
