Arts For Health's Sake

Art for Health’s Sake is the arts program managed by the George Elliot NHS Trust. Art for Health’s Sake seeks to operate as an exciting platform to get art into the hospital: on wards, in waiting rooms, recreational spaces and across the community services it provides.

With this in mind we are continually working on projects throughout the George Elliot; undertaking artistic initiatives to encourage social engagement of the community; creating new commissions; and planning creative outlets for individual wards, staff, patients and service users.

Operating out of our new Arts Hub in the hospital’s old Janet Ward we have undertaken projects such as art auctions at the hospital to raise money for our charitable funds, undertaken renovation of some of our green spaces in conjunction with commercial partners, exhibited the work of local artists within the hospital, and run some very successful community art workshops creating well loved and significant pieces for the hospital. We encourage you to visit our ‘Projects’ page where you can find more details on previous and ongoing initiatives as well as find information on how to get involved!
