Healing Arts is the arts charity for North Cumbria University Hospital’s Trust. Through the arts and arts participation Healing Arts aims to support the health and wellbeing of patients, families and staff.
The arts can have enormous therapeutic value, and can provide patients with distraction from daily illness and pain, a chance to learn something new, to meet new people and above all to be treated as individuals.
Over November 2017 I worked with children and families on Cumberland Infirmary’s children’s ward to design and create this colourful calendar, and for images to be displayed in the hospital Gallery space over the festive season.
All proceeds go back into Healing Arts projects.
