Arts for All

Arts for All is an ambitious programme that brings a daily dose of music, performance and creative activities into the wards, using art as a tool for healing.

A visit from a musician or dancer, a craft class, a trip to our in-house cinema or an opportunity to work with an Artist in Residence can lift spirits, stimulate mind and body and foster social engagement at a time when it’s easy to feel alone.

More than just a programme, Arts for All connects patients, staff, local artists and community partners in a shared mission to aid recovery and improve wellbeing. The feedback we receive from participants is testament to the extraordinary power of creativity, connection and community.

When I hear music, I cry with joy. You have given me so much to think about. You have brought my emotions back
