Arts in Health

The Arts in Health program integrates art into the life of the Women's and Children's Hospital to improve a child’s health and wellbeing.

In simple terms we try to make the environment more ‘child-friendly’, making it look better and helping to make the time spent in hospital 'feel better'.

Established in August 2008, the TeamKids Arts in Health program delivers a range of activities throughout the hospital across art forms such as: Visual Arts and Digital Media, Music and Performing Arts, Public Arts and Integrated Design, Literature and the Therapeutic Arts (Play Therapy, Art Therapy and Music Therapy).

From providing pencils and colouring books in waiting areas, to running Gallery spaces and art displays in the Hospital, to collaborating with Hospital School on book week activities and working closely with the Play Therapy Team, the Arts in Health program delivers smiles and fun throughout the Hospital.

Help TeamKids to raise funds so we can continue to run and expand on our Arts in Health program across the Women’s and Children’s Hospital.
