Opportunity for artists

Art in Healthcare is seeking to commission three artists to create three artworks each for the Rohallion Secure Care Unit in Perth, which was opened in 2013. The facility is a modern building with large communal and circulation areas that require artistic and therapeutic visual transformation to provide a welcoming and soothing environment for patients of the clinic. For more details please see our artists' brief.

Artworks to Nairn

With thanks to Morton Trust funding, in December 2015 we were very happy to deliver and install over 30 artworks to Nairn Healthcare Group, NHS Highland.

Comments from patients at Nairn Healthcare Group:

‘ I just think it’s great that you’ve got art here …it opens people’s eyes’

‘They could do more with art for people with chronic conditions …I think it will help them and especially children’

‘They’re all lovely …it makes such a difference’

Medical teams were very engaged throughout the selection process of artworks and provided great support during the installation of artworks.
