Arts in Health Care Trust
The Arts in Health Care Trust’s purpose is to offer arts – in the broadest sense – to people who would otherwise have limited access due to health, mobility or special needs issues. It takes the holistic view that the arts can encourage a healing process - so interaction and participation are fundamental to the trust’s activities.
The Arts in Health Care Trust:
- subsidises the cost of performances
- encourages local musicians to develop relationships with residential homes and day centres by publishing a directory of local artists
- promotes arts therapies and gives grants and project funding to support work in the community and care settings
- encourages a social activities forum to keep people in healthcare settings socially active
- supports the installation of art in locations such as the General Hospital and Westmount
