Art for Everyone: Paintings in Hospitals’ Artwork Selection and Co-curation activities

Paintings in Hospitals

Our project aims to involve patients and service users from health and social care organisations in the selection of artworks for their sites. Recognising the importance of placing patients at the centre of the decision making process, the sessions aim to support them to explore their opinions on a group of artworks, explore their tastes, and contribute to decisions about their display – and therefore gain ownership of their health or social care- site.

Artfelt Workshop Programme

Artfelt Workshop Programme

Artfelt, the arts programme at Sheffield Children’s Hospital, has two primary streams of work. The Artfelt Workshop Programme sits alongside our commissioning work in using art to make hospital feel better. Overseen by our Workshop Coordinator, this two day a week project sees a variety of visual arts, crafts and music sessions made available to patients during their time at Sheffield Children’s Hospital.
