Art in Healthcare is a charity and has been working in Scotland since 1991. Our vision is ‘Art for every healthcare setting in Scotland’ and our mission is to use visual art to improve health and wellbeing. We value putting the person at the centre of their own health and wellbeing, humanising healthcare environments and the positive health and wellbeing impact of the visual arts. We also value quality, innovation and professionalism and the ideas and ambitions of artists, without whom our work would not be possible.
Little as we know about the way in which we are affected by form, by colour, and light, we do know this: that they have an actual physical effect. Variety of form and brilliancy of colour in the objects presented to patients, are actual means of recovery. Florence Nightingale 1860
