Local artists and volunteers regularly offer a variety of activities to patients in hospital, including storytelling, painting, music and poetry, encouraging patient interaction, movement and memory. Arts and participation in arts activities is well evidenced as improving care and outcomes especially for people with communications and cognitive impairments and dementia.
The art room project is a collective programme of participatory arts, bringing a creative space to patient bedsides.
If you are a local artist, writer or musician and would like to support our project do get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
