"The old Maternity Block at the City General Hospital is where a quarter of a million people first saw the light of day. Soon, it will become a part of North Staffordshire’s history as it is demolished to make way for a new complex as part of the transformation of the hospital site.Rebirth will bring together performing artists, creative writers, photographers, visual artists, hospital staff, students, and the wider community to celebrate, document and explore this transformational moment in the regeneration of North Staffordshire." Rosemray Strang
"06.05.09 Rebirth is a series of multi-artform events created to celebrate the transformation of the City General's Maternity Hospital. A series of light-projection displays will lead up to the July launch at new Maternity Centre — a launch event that sounds like a good networking opportunity, especially for artists interested in health issues. Rebirth launch will also see launch of the documentary film and book, and will showcase artworks by local art students — sculpture, light-projections, paintings and installations for the new maternity centre. Both the book and DVD will be available for sale (any proceeds will go towards new art projects for the maternity centre). Watch for more details on Creative Stoke, nearer to July."
