Sponsored by Mark Isherwood MS

Dates: 12 January - 15 February 2024

Location: Senedd Oriel


What Matters Most? gives an honest, raw, and inspiring account of what matters in life and in death, aimed at improving end of life care through sharing the experiences of those receiving and delivering care.

The project was inspired by Same but Different photographer and director, Ceridwen Hughes’ own experience of end of life care, when her mother died in 2020. Through photography, film, and written narratives, the exhibition introduces the experiences of those living with dying and the caregivers involved in providing care and support.


Our ageing population means the number of people needing palliative and end of life care in Wales will increase significantly in the coming years. The exhibition is therefore a timely exploration of how end of life care can be improved, based on the experiences of those directly involved.

What Matters Most? is a collaborative creative project between Same but Different, Marie Curie, Hospice UK, and the National Lottery Community Fund.
