Artsparks Art at the Heart of the RUH

Art at the Heart of the RUH’s Artsparks project to bring creative workshops to young patients.

Name of Organisation:

Royal United Hospital NHS Trust Bath


Title of project/programme:

Artsparks Art at the Heart of the RUHActivities for young patients


Dates of project/programme:



Artsparks brought a series of regular creative workshops to young patients on the Children’s Ward and the School Room’s Hospital Education and Re-integration Service (HERS). Our aim was simple, to create a positive environment using inspirational professional arts practitioners to provide a stimulating distraction from the day to day routine of their treatment.

Young people often feel threatened by the hospital environment and isolated at home during convalescence, those questioned felt that because they were ill they had a completely different experience of being a child or teenager.

They created artworks in response to materials, methods, themes and issues, which were showcased in their new gallery.
