Arts for Health is an independent charity based at Milton Keynes University Hospital. The aim of the charity is to use art to improve the health and wellbeing of the residents of Milton Keynes.
A large part of our work is based around the role that art can play in enhancing the health care environment of the hospital. Hospitals are often very stressful places to be admitted to, to visit and to work in. They are unique environments, eliciting strong feelings and reactions ranging from nerve wracking to frightening and exciting to boring. Art in a hospital provides an opportunity to be distracted, soothed, cheered and engaged.
We are inviting submissions from artists interested in exhibiting at Milton Keynes University Hospital as part of our changing exhibition programme.
The exhibition programme offers artists the opportunity to reach a wide and diverse audience through displaying work within corridors and waiting rooms on the hospital site for the duration of six months.
We are now looking for artists for the March-August changeover. Exhibitions will be installed in March date TBC.
From the submitted works a panel will select works to be included in the exhibition.
