POSTED ON: 17th of August 2020
Art in Healthcare is a Scottish charity based
in Edinburgh using its collection of more than 1,600 works of
contemporary art to transform healthcare environments throughout
Scotland. The charity was established in 1991 and has developed in
recent years to also offer art workshops including a social prescription
programme - Room for Art - which is currently funded by the Integrated
Joint Board of the Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnership. Art in
Healthcare’s work is guided by a Strategic Plan, which aims to maximise
the positive impact of visual art for mental health and wellbeing. The
charity has also developed an expertise in art for people affected by
dementia and is now seeking to consolidate and further expand this
activity. Art in Healthcare has a strong track record of working
collaboratively with partners in community health, the NHS, arts
organisations, Trusts & Foundations and commercial sponsors. All of
Art in Healthcare’s work to achieve positive health and wellbeing
outcomes is supported by professional artists.
