Over the years since it started in 1988, Arts in Healthcare has established a role for the arts within healthcare buildings and services through numerous commissions, artist residences, exhibition programmes, visual and performing arts workshops with patients and staff, and the display of hundreds of artworks on loan from professional artists. Arts in Healthcare continues to grow and develop as there is an increasing awareness that access and involvement in the arts can have a positive influence in promoting discussion, interaction, health and well being.
