Art in Healthcare (originally Paintings in Hospitals Scotland) was founded in 1991 and has since been building one of the largest Collections of original, contemporary Scottish art in the country, which it lends to hospitals and other healthcare settings throughout the country for the benefit and enjoyment of staff, patients and visitors. More recently the organisation has been diversifying and providing services including art collection management, consultancy and project management of public art commissions developing arts strategies for health boards and organising inspiring art workshops for participants within healthcare environments.
Art In Healthcare recently undertook the AmbITion Approach. Please see the presentation below to learn more about its digital development journey.
Our Vision and Mission:
Art in Healthcare’s vision is for original, contemporary art to be accessible to everyone in care environments for the enhancement of health and wellbeing.
Art in Healthcare will work towards this by sourcing, placing and managing art collections, and encouraging creativity to improve the lives of people across Scotland.
