Arts & Health Gippsland at a Glance
A Bit of Background
In 2019, Arts & Health Gippsland seeks opportunities to infuse local healthcare with art. This goal is informed by a wide range of evidence-based research. Arts & Health Gippsland strives to build productive relationships between healthcare providers, curated artworks, and the artists that have produced those artworks, to enable a positive impact upon health seekers and their health practitioners. This pursuit of the Arts combined with Health is based on a rich program piloted by Kings College, London; Arts & Health Gippsland will endeavour to create a neat fit of the underlying principles with the Gippsland Healthcare environment.
Making A Difference
Arts & Health Gippsland aims to augment the healthcare environment with the Arts. This is in three ways: Curating artworks to be displayed in primary healthcare rooms and other clinical settings; providing art making facilitation for the purposes of rehabilitation, therapy, or treatment for one-on-one or in group settings; and facilitating artist-in-residence programs to increase the sense of community within various healthcare settings. The work we do is aimed at providing a holistic approach to solving some of our healthcare's biggest challenges.
